It is natural to feel upset when you discover that your child has taken something that doesn’t belong to them. However, it is also an opportunity for you to teach them about honesty and responsibility. You can start by calmly talking to your child about what they did and why it is wrong. Explain the importance of respecting other people’s property and discuss the consequences of their actions. Then, help them understand how they can make things right, such as returning the item or apologizing to the person they took it from. Remember to also listen to their perspective and offer support and guidance as they learn and grow.
