My daughter is constantly taking things that don't belong to her, eg, she takes money out of my wallet and then doesn't know where she puts it! Now she has gone too far, and I need advice on how to handle the situation. A little background info: we live with my father (my daughter and I) she has no contact with her father at all, its just my self, my dad and daughter in the house, discipline is a struggle as my dad interfers all the time! She even says she doesn't need to listen to me, only her pa!! But today, she took the cake... She took my dad's new cellphone and put it in her bag when we went to movies, I didn't even know she had it in her bag, and now its lost! Bag and all. I feel she needs to start earning what she wants so she can realise the value of things, not working hard or anything, just small tiny chores and stuff, but my dad feels she is too young! We are going to argue about this! Is there anyone who can help me or advise me on how to go about figuring this 1 out? My dad, is pretty well off and can afford to buy another phone, I am not! I am struggling as it is. But just because he can, doesn't mean she should get away with this type of behaviour! Or is she really too young to understand the situation yet?
