8 y/o aspie stealing to add to "collection"

Kelly - posted on 05/16/2013 ( no moms have responded yet )




My 8 y/o has aspergers and has been stealing. Just trivial things, erasers, paper clips, staples, anything he finds on the floor and will fit in his pocket. He says its part of his "collection". How do I convince him that some of these things he takes belong to people. His latest thing is pens, he likes to take them apart to get the springs out. The problem is he's taking GOOD pens and ends up w/ ink everywhere! Any advice?
