Stealing?

My friend has a FIVE year old nephew that is stealing money from his mother and grandma. He obvioulsy knows a little of what he is doing considering he is taking the 20's instead of the 1's. He lives in a christian based home and knows the ten commandments and that it is wrong to steal. He gets punshined for his wrong doings, but they don't seem to faze him.Please help!

  • My personal opinion is he might be doing it for the attention. I mean what can a 5 year old do with money? It's not like he can go to a store by himself and spend it, so he must know he is going to get caught.

    I'm thinking this is something completely different than a child stealing money to buy things.
