My Journey as a Foster and Adoptive Parent.... 12 kids in 12 years.
I have had children who learned not to steal.
Ooh, good survey. I did it. You should do another one about kids who destroy your things. While mine steal, they don't get the concept of money (yet) so the monetary value of stolen stuff is still small...but the stuff they have destroyed of mine? Like keying up the car? Destroying the sheetrock walls in multiple rooms? Wrecking windows/screens/doors? WAY over $1000.Not to mention the cut cords on electronics, busted CDs and DVDs, wood carving anything that is wood, and so on. Sigh. nevermind. I don't want to think about this LOL
OMG to Torina's comment about torn up sheet rock! It's funny now but I was livid at the time. Sissy had been banished to the laundry room for breakfast meals for a week because her mealtime behaviors were so deplorable. On the last day, she began singing and banging the wall with her spoon. I was like "whatever" until I got her out. The wall was destroyed! I had NO idea that a teaspoon could do so much damage to sheet rock! Or that a 6 year old weilding that teaspoon would be oblivious to it!!!!!
i will not answer this poll and tempt the fates.
