My 10 year old child has been caught stealing at school. The items stolen were fidgets (sensory toys that supposedly help with fidgeting). I got a call from the school and we had a meeting with the principal and teacher.
This was the third he was reprimanded by them. He was let off with a warning because he is an all around great kid otherwise.
He has been grounded and reprimanded at home, just looking to see if anyone else has been through this and what other measures as a parent I can take.
I caught him trying to take a car from a dollar store once before this and thought my talk helped, apparently not. I am shocked and embarrassed for him but know he knows better! I feel like a failure as a parent.
