My 13 yr old step daughter has been stealing food from grocery stores and hiding them in her closet, and eating them in private. I first discovered her in her closet eating a box of yogurt covered raisens she said her mother had bought her. After looking further, we found a box of "food" hidden in her closet. Tubs and tubes of cake frosting, krackle for ice cream and premixed cake batter. All were half eaten. We then found out she had also done the same thing at her mothers house, but where never told. My step daughter is over weight and we provide her healthly foods too eat, however now it's obvious why she continues to gain weight. We have had problems also with online chatting with men, her grades are horrible, she lies to us and seems not to have concern of her actions or the consequences of any of these actions. She has been seeing a therapist for several years..we are at our wits end. Has anyone experienced similar situation?
