Lock up the food and give him an eviction notice.



How OLD is this guy? Does he have a job and pay rent?

I agree with everybody else. Lock the food up. If it has to be refrigerated, get a small one to put in your bedroom and put a lock on it for safekeeping. There is no reason why he should steal you kids food. Have you asked your husband to talk to him about it?

If it were me, I'd put padlocks on the cupboards - or at least on the ones containing your kids' food and snacks!

he recently moved into our downstairs fully furnished apartment with his own kitchen, bathroom, etc. i have asked him in the past to please not eat the food we buy for the girls (money is tight and my 6 yr old and 1 yr old are growing fast!). yet he continues to sneak into the kitchen, tiptoeing, waiting for us to go to sleep.....and eats the kids food, sometimes leaving them with no lunch or snack for the next day! it disgusts me that i would even have to ask him NOT to do this! how can i effectively get through to his spoiled and selfish brain without being violent??
