How do I curb stealing in my child

When you catch your child lying to you, you experience a host of emotions as a parent. But what happens when you discover that your child has not only been lying but also stealing! You find yourself doubting every decision that you have made as a parent. Our proparent blogger Shikha Batra urges you not to be hard on yourself… If you catch your child lying or stealing, it doesn’t mean that your child is ‘bad’ or that you are a ‘bad’ parent. Don’t label your child or yourself, instead deal with the situation maturely. Here’s how.

hi Samar! thanks for sharing your experience. I appreciate it and the way you tackled the situation is commendable. even after knowing the truth u didn't scold her or overreact and explained to her in the way she understands best I. e. in the form of a story. I think one day when she would realize it's her father who used to gift her and not the fairy, she would be thankful to you for letting her believe that our good deeds come back to us and so does our bad deeds in such a simple yet effective way. keep it up! thanks again for your feedback!

Hi Shikha, Thanks this article is v helpful. I want to share an incident of my daughter. One day while returning back to home from school she took somebody's water bottle ( pink colored with disney princesses printed on it). When I asked her about, she replied " My teacher gifted me the same. " I was shocked to hear such a clean and confident lie from her. Since it was a old and used bottle, I want to react but controlled myself. Same evening I pretending her like I am calling her teached to thank her for the gift. She scared & stopped me and told me the truth. I observed that she feel ambaraced. During bed time I tell her a story about a fairy and her admirer Gannu bappa (Ganesh ji). I told her that whenever anybody is doing unethical activity then they are surely watching them to give punishment in the form of small injury (like regular injuries). Genrally, On alternate Sunday mornings I put a small gift near her pillow to appriciate her for doing good i school activities - stating that "Its a surprise given by a fairy during your nap for your good work" Thats it.. She understands but sometime I got a fear that by doing such may be I am promoting her to live in a dream land. Hope I am wrong. This application really helps parents like me to act properly with our kids. Thanks & Regards Samar
