  • No, my daughter wouldn't take anything without asking. I have a friend who's dd will go into her home with friends and eat her food, make a mess, go through and try on her clothes and leave all without asking. I think that is very disrespectful.

  • My children are 13 and 2 so they are aren't old enough to just come over and take shit but my 13 yrs hides food like snacks in his room and then saids he knows nothing about where they went. He is grounded right now for lying about it. He has a huge issue with lying so hopefully now that he is grounded for a month he will learn that lying gets you NO WHERE. He lied and got grounded for a week and then when my hubby and I were at work Saturday he had 3 friends over and 2 of them were girls and he saw me coming up the drive way and hide them in the room and I went in there to get wash and he got caught red handed and said he didn't know they were in his room. Like I said he has an issue with liying. Mind you all I HATE LIERS.
