How do you effectively punish a child for stealing money?
First of all, my father asked me to ask you guys.
My step-sister is 10 years old. They just found out that she was stealing money from everyone in the family. Recently, there was a thing going on at school where they could buy books and other toys in the library. She stole $50 from her mom and used it all. She also lies about it as well.
Aside from hiding the money, what can they do that will effectively teach her not to touch anyone’s money ever again?
