Not as worried about the latter part as I know he is trying to feel out his boundaries but what to do about lying and stealing. I recently have been finding money missing out of my wallet and then this morning found him having his brother (who is 4) emptying his piggyback to "put money in his wallet". When I came down the stairs to inspect the situation my older son ran out of the room. I then found money and his DS in a small hidden backpack pocket meant for an MP3. He denied knowing it was there or how it got there. Then he turned around and blamed his brother. HELP!!!!
How do I stop this now before he gets any older or it becomes more criminal? He is 10 now and will turn 11 in August.
