My son has been snowballing with bad behavior lately, about two weeks ago he started stealing things like redbulls beers and cans of dip, so we took action to prevent, and locked everything up that could be harmful to him, and he has been grounded for about a week now and started running away in the middle of the night which is now costing us money we dont really have because how can parents put a price on our child's safety. so we have bought locks for the refrigerators and our bedroom, but now he is running away so we have to go buy window and door alarms... how can I put a stop to this behavior? keep in mind we have been giving him positive attention and trying to keep his mind busy at all times, this running away is really scaring me alot, i have high anxiety now and cannot sleep in fear i will wake up to find my son missing again...what do i do? what is a fail proof consequence for this action?
