  • If I caught her I'd make her take the item back and apologize. If someone else caught her she'd be grounded like no other.

  • I would have long,serious talk with her, ground her (no TV, no friends) and make sure she returns whatever it was and apologizes. And don't give in on the grounding thing. Set limits and expect her to know the difference between right and wrong. She needs to know she can't be dishonest!!!

  • I would spank her, take it back, apologize to the manager on duty, and make her work off the money for what she stole. I think a very loud clear message needs to be driven into her head that this is not ok in any way shape or form.

  • Why did she not learn this was wrong way before now?? Sounds like MOM and DAD need discipline too.
