Question regarding Stealing???!
What drives kids to steal??
I'm NOT talking about kids that take a cookie when you are not looking or a 4 yr old who may grab something in the store when you are not looking. I'm talking about a 11, 12,13 yr old step kid who steals from your home. Could be money, phone charger, some small gadget that they may like. This is my SS. Now SS NEVER steals from BM's house and brings stuff to our house only steals from our house to bring to BM's house. SS told us he has over $800 at BM's house under his bed(SS took a picture with his phone and showed us) BUT refuses to bring ANY over to DH's to spend.
Of course DH is in denial over SS's stealing and just thinks either I or himself " misplaced" the stolen goods but I know better. Things only disappear AFTER SS's visit and its only small things that he can fit in his pocket. I have to work most days SS goes back to BM's so a pocket search is not possible. Our house is to big for nanny cams.
So my question is WHY does a kid who has tons of stuff at both houses feel the need to steal from ONLY one home???
