Sorry to hear about this, Leane, must be really alarming for you. Surely at 12 he already knows that stealing things is wrong, and that it will get him into trouble. Are there possibly other problems in his life, troubling him, such that he feels attracting negaive attention in this way might sound the alarms for him ? I'm not able to recommend specific shrinks ( imagine the fuss from the others ! ) but your GP, the school, or your local FAMSA should be able to advise - I know there are some child and adolescent oriented psychiatrist in Pretoria.
