This morning dh texts me asking how many doughnuts were in the kitchen after I left.
There were 3, enough for dh ds 1 and ds 2.
Ds one(the 5yr old) was awake dirst(dh was too) so dh gave him his doughnut. Ds said he was getting some water(water is free range in our house). Dh goes about chores doing laundry and what not. Well ds 2 wakes up and dh goes to guve him his doughnut.....they are all gone!!
Ds 1 ate 3 doughnuts that he knew were not to be eaten.
He has been doing similar things to this, sneaking and taking things, sneaking out in the am to play the xbox.
He is an extreamly sensative kid and even if you calmly talk to him he bawls instantly. Dh said he did this as a kid because he would do something then feel terrible for it and just cry and cry.
Neither of us had awesome parenting and dissaplin as kids so we are not sure what to do or the best way to get across to him that this is not a good behavior.
My fear is the lying. Dh has a younger brother(15) who is a compulsive liar. I DON'T want that to become our son!
