I need some advice about my daughter

Posted by on Apr. 8, 2009 at 4:26 PM

Help! I have a three year old daughter and have been battling issues with her taking things that don't belong to her. Everytime I catch her taking things I smack her on the hand, explain that stealing is wrong and she can't do it, then tell her to go stand in the corner or sit on her bed for a little while. So far it this approach doesn't seem to be working but I don't know what else to do. I can't just take away her toys because she shares a room with her cousin and it wouldn't be fair to her cousin. Please moms tell me how to handle this. Would prefer advice from mothers who have actually been through this but am willing to take any advice. Thank you :)

havent been through it but someone i know has. try taking her favorite toy or blanket. something you know she will miss and when shes upset about it being gone tell her you took it and ask her how she feels. then explain to her about how it makes you or the someone else feel when she takes something from them. "treat people how you want to be treated" "dont take other peoples things if you dont want yours taken"
