The 6 year old is stealing food and then lying about it, also getting her younger sister to steal for her as well. What can I do to stop this? I have tried everything and am coming up with nothing that is working. I'm about at my wits end and ready for a break down! Please help I need suggestions about anything that I can try!Answer Question

Is she sneaking into the kitchen after meals and snacks and sneaking goodies? You've gotta set the ground rules. When it's meal time that's when you eat. When it's an approved snack time, that's when you eat. We had to put a lock on the pantry because my 5 yo would go and sneak fruit snacks when he knew he wasn't allowed to have any. He'd go through a box of fruit snacks in a day or so and then I'd find the wrappers all over his bedroom stuffed in the toy box, under his mattress, etc. To solve that I just put a lock on the pantry. When it's meal time or snack time I take it off, but there's no reason he should be getting fruit snacks at 9 in the morning when he just finished breakfast. I don't deprive my kids of food, they know they are more then welcome to have seconds if they want and they get two healthy snacks a day on top of meals. My son just LOVES fruit snacks, he's not starving.
