Our expert says:
when you spoke with her could she give you any reason why she was stealing? In teens, this can sometimes happen because they are becoming competitive with their peers and wanting money to spend on posessions and clothes. However, it can also be an attempt to get your attention and let you know that emotionally all is not well. For this reason I would suggest she sees a therapist, preferably someone who specialises in adolescents. Your family doctor, or your daughter's school should be a able to recommend someone to you.
