My name is Brooke. DS Anthony was having a great year so far without any behavior or academic problems. His support teacher kept telling me that we have a new Anthony and she cannot believe how great he is doing. Well, Tuesday I missed a call from his teacher. She left a voicemail saying that there has been some issues with stealing and that Anthony has stolen several things the past few weeks. His teacher is very aware of his issues and has been trying to work with him on this. She said it was getting out of hand and she needed to speak to me. When I got the message school was over so I was going to call the next day (yesterday) while the children were at lunch. Well, I was in a meeting for work yesterday and when I got back I had another missed call and voicemail from the school. I listened to the message and it was his principal. Unfortunatly we are on a first name basis. She proceeded to tell me that someone needed to come pick him up because he had brought a weapon to school. Well, he apparently stole my haircutting scissors and brought them to school. She, then proceeded to tell me about the stealing issues and that Anthony had stolen a classmates DS the other day. They found it in his bookbag and returned it to her. His principal gave him the benefit of the doubt since he had been having such a good day. She told him that if he talked to the guidance counselor about why he did it that she would not call home. Well, he went to the guidance counselor but didnt talk. Then, Tuesday he stole another classmates snack and pencil box. He told them that he would give it back if they gave him something else. I am at my wits end and I am unsure what to do. He is in counseling but litterally does not say a word the whole hour he is there. Whenever I ask him something the answer is always why. When I threaten to take things away he will just throw them out without me taking them from him. I am unsure where to go from here. I am worried because next year he will be in middle school and they would have just called the cops on him. So, he is now on out of school suspension for violating a weapons code and theft. Anthony is my Step son that I have raised since he was 6 months old. He is aware that I am not his bio mom. He sees her maybe once every two years. I am so clueless. Please if you have any advice I am willing to listen. thanks so much for reading this long rant.

Thank you Babydoll213 for my beautiful siggy

I am so sorry you are going through this hun. Tyler went through a stealing phase last year as well when he was 9, luckily he was only stealing from me tho, not that that is ok, but I would rather him steal from me than people at school KWIM? I'm not sure what finally made him stop, but he did stop. Have you talked to him about it? What reasons does he give you for stealing? Is he on any meds?

He is not on meds at the time. He has been stealing since kindergarten. His answer to any question you ask him is I don't know.

what does his therapist think?

I wish you luck and hope you can get it taken care of quickly. You don't want something like that to linger as it could turn into conduct disorder.
