This broadcast focuses on children who take things that are not theirs for the taking.  We are not talking about simple things like "stealing a cookie" before dinner, but kids who steal candy bars from grocery stores or designer clothing from the mall.  We will discuss the functions behind this behavior and what educators and parents can do to ameliorate stealing before it becomes a life-long habit.

Young children steal for very different reasons than teenagers.  Come listen to the difference and some easy ways to model appropriate behavior for your child or student.
