You do need to do something, maybe a strong talking to by the police might be enough to scare her. You don't want her to try and live life with a criminal record though, that will possible lead to other problems and more crimes being committed. I'd keep your money next to you at all times to stop the temptation for her, too.
TOUGH LOVE.<br />
If you don't do something to get through to her *now*, she will be stealing bigger and more expensive things as an adult and will end up in prison or worse.
It depends --what is she stealing? and if its money, how much?<br />
What other form of disciplinary actions are you willing to enforce?
How long did you keep her in counseling? --I ask this question due to the fact that any one who stops counseling before they have been their therapist for at least 6 months is not getting the required amount of time needed to uncover the root of the problem...... the average person needs 6 to 12 months in counseling.
What is the counselor saying about her actions and why she might be doing this? What was her childhood like?
no. what did she steal>?
well i have a thought on this because i had to press charges against my son 4 years ago for domestic violence he ended up on ankle bracelet probation for 3 years( he plead guilty in 2012) that was just up this June! It was the hardest thing to do if the state hadn't of pressed charges i don't think i would have gone through it but it was the best thing i ever did for him! He is bipolar and he got a wonderful doctor and he is on the right medicine and he had to take and he is doing so well for himself. You may not think you are doing the right thing by pressing charges but believe me you are maybe she will find the solution to what is making her steal from you!
