Okay ladies I'm really stumped my 4 year old is honestly all of the above and she's only 4. Typically she does this in realtion to food and btw she's REALLY GOOD at it. She fools me on a regular basis, I can't even keep the mommy mystic b/c she hides the food (candy, gum) in her room and often I can't find it. She will look at me straight in the eye and swear there is no more and its only sometimes that I will find the evidence. She climbs onto a chair to get to the pumpkin that is way up (I moved it even higher today). She gets my great aunt to give her stuff behind my back (not much I can do there -- great aunt is 89 w/senile dementia - my 3rd child) she goes into my purse to find my orbits etc.
Just the stealing is bad enough but the fact that she can trick me scares the bejeasus out of me. If this is now (at 3/4) what will happen when she's 15? Any ideas on how to break this now... nothing I've tried has worked .
