Socio-economic instability of modern society exacerbates a number of problems of education of children. When faced with child stealing, many parents and teachers are experiencing a complex range of negative emotions: anger, shame, fear for the future of the child, a sense of helplessness. The causes of this phenomenon are often hidden, making it difficult to find the right pedagogical response to the act of the child.
Theft – this is criminal misappropriation and stealing someone else’s property, contrary to the law of morality and ethics.
Child theft is a frequent phenomenon, but carefully concealed as alcoholism and other “shameful” family secrets. In the minds of most adults firmly soldered two mythologies: the child is an innocent angel, and stealing – a sign of the criminal world. When a child is caught stealing, the parents usually feel completely confused.

The first edition of this book quickly sold out, which confirmed the great need of our readers in the acquisition of knowledge and practical skills to help you better communicate with children.
Admire the exceptional willingness of people to work seriously to create psychological well-being of their children and families, despite the economic upheavals and stresses of our modern life.

At night when the store is closed, they jump on the stairs. It’s their favorite game.
