Our expert says:
its very important here to establish clear firm boundaries, and to think about what reasonable consequences there may be if your daughter defies you. If she is going to continue stealing from you and then ignoring what you have to say about it, you wil need to consider at which point you make it clear that if the stealing continues you will involve the police.
How are things at school? Are there also problems with her behaviour there? If so you may want to speak to the school counsellor. Some aspects of this are normal adolescent responses to boundaries when wanting increasingly more freedom, but the stealing needs to be addressed, as do the issues of respecting reasonable parental authority.
