I've had an onging issue with my older daughter. She keeps lying and stealing betwern £3 & £5. I'm a single parent and trying to make money stretch but find I'm down money considerably. At first I thought it was me and then I found out the truth. NOW...I've used grounding, removal of all technology and made her work for the money by doing chores. This evidently has had no affect on her as she has done it again today. I had enough and felt a sharp shock would scare her by saying I didn't want a thief living under my roof and therefore asked her to pack her bags. She did this without a fuss or begging not to go. She just walked out with 3 bags full without saying anything.
Did I do the right thing?
What am I to do, chastising just isn't working.
Does ANYONE have some advice on tackling this awful situation please, i'm in desperate need of.an outsiders opinion. I feel like I'm failing.
Please note: I knew where my daughter went and I picked her up after 30 mins. It was unbearable!
