Parenting --Teens/Stealing


What is a punishment that i should use if my son steals from me over 30 times

Hi Benjamin,

I am going to need more background information about what is going on with your son before I can really give you a good answer. What is he stealing? What is his age? If he is in school, what grade is he in and how well is he doing? Other than stealing, how is his behavior around the house? Are you a single parent or is there another parental figure in the picture? How long has this behavior been going on and what have you done in the past to attempt to stop it?

If you reply with answers to my questions and anything else that you think would be important to know, I will be glad to advise you on some suggested approaches.

I can answer most question regarding the raising of teens. Since my personal experience has been raising 13 foster sons and an adopted son, I am stronger talking about parenting male teens and young adults. When it comes to teen problems and how to parent them, I am equally well versed with male and female issues. I am also very strong answering substance abuse and addiction issues, teen dating drama, questions about sex and questions relating to same sex issues and concerns.
