  • Too bad if he gets mad! I don't know how old he is or the circumstances... but if he is stealing from you...Get him mad!! He would be plenty mad with me...when I started hocking his stuff to repay what he took from me. He is only doing it because He can. Don't let him. Sorry for the tough love response but sometimes it is the answer. take care.

  • Um... say NO! You are the mom, you are the boss. Depending on his age, make him get a job or work around the house for money.

  • How old is he. If he is old enough to steal maybe a visit with a local police officer or judge can wake him up. Teach him not to steal now will keep him out of jail tomorrow.

  • Mommascoocoo is right. Pawn his things to get the money back and see how he likes it!

  • Punch him in his ass. Are you more concerned with the money being taken or him being mad? YOu only need to solve one of these problems. Let him be mad and I agree with Annezbeth, let him have a visit from the police, no matter what his age is. Kids are killing people now adays, discipline him while he's young.

  • When my son was 6 years old, he took 5.00 off my bedroom dresser. I asked my daughter, she said no, then I asked my son, he said no. I told the both of them to sit in the living room while I called the police to have them take finger prints, which would tell me who stole. My son started crying saying, "I don't want to go to jail mom. I won't ever do it again, I promise." and he never did. I scared the pants off him.
