Our expert says:
It certainly could be the start of a problem, and needs to be stopped early on. WHy is there money lying around hat she can steal ? And it/s stealing, and lying ) apparently ) about the man. Can she describe the man, and show you where he is, and where he speaks to her ? Tell her that if there is such a man involved, you will have to call the police and have them investigate, and of course, if they then find she has ben stealing these thigns for sweets for her friends, that would be very serious.
Take her to see a child shrink or counsellor to explore what is going on, and based on such an assessment, he/she can best advise on how to handle the situation. Is there a pychologist or counsellor avbailable, attached to her school ? And are things fine at shool, or are there perhaps problems there, as well ?
