It can be very upsetting to be told, or find out, that your child or teenager is lying or stealing – and can be upsetting for everyone in the family. In most cases incidents like this can be one off silly mistakes.
However, if the stealing or lying is becoming persistent or accompanied by other problem behaviours or symptoms, this may be a sign of more serious problems in the child's emotional development or problems at home or at school and it is advisable to seek professional help.
In helping a child or teenager who steals or lies persistently, our Child and Adolescent team would evaluate the underlying reasons behind the behaviour and would provide recommendations for the best way to support them.
