Can anyone please help me? My daughter is now 15. She has stolen money, from her grandmother, stolen small t hings from friend's houses and now she has stolen again-from the home of her boyfriend. I feel I have failed her as a parent in that I do not know what to do to make her realize it's wrong and soon she'll be labeled and no one will want to associate with her. I realize it's impulsivity behavior associated with her ADHD. What kind of help do I need to find for her? Any advise would be greatly appreciated.

My daughter is nine so I haven't had to deal with anything like this yet but I would suggest you get her into counseling before she steals something from somewhere that will land her in juvenile detention. Good luck!

I can empathize but unforturnately do not have any answers. My son (now 12) has had minor incidences before (stealing candy from siblings, a Hot Wheels car from the grocery store, food. But two weeks ago he stole an IPOD and two cell phones from school. He got busted at school and at home. The principal only gave him one day in ISS (In-school-supension) and I grounded him for a month. Two weeks later he is back in the principal's office - he wrote extremely ugly and threatening sentences in his English journal. He was suspended for the rest of the day and had to serve another day in ISS. I do not know what to do. He says he just sees something and has to have it. He is truely remorseful after the fact. He sees a counselor regularly. I may check into medication for implusiveness. He is already on Prozac for anxiety disorder.
