  • Just have a general conversation with her about borrowing money. It's polite to ask for the money before taking it even if it's returned. Then again, could it be someone else?

  • i work in a retail store and we are not allowed to pass money back and forth.....also i did not buy dinner before like i usually do before i go to work....then my friend asked me if i wanted a coffee and i put my hand in my pocket knowing i didnt have any money....but there it was...she is a good kid,really doesnt do anything wrong...i do know there is something going on in her head though...

  • You're the mom and she needs to be told she has to ask before she takes it. Even if she didn't this time and she has in the past, she still needs to be told. She could think it is ok and start taking money from others. Ask her if she took it and put it back. No harm in asking.
