While reading this post by HeatherB I got to thinking about the 2 times (might be 3 I’m not sure) that I stole stuff as a little kid. Thinking back I can’t for the life of me understand why I did it.
One time I stole was a small bag of Sugar Daddies candy and I assume if I wanted it I could have asked my mother but instead I stole it.
Another time I stole a couple miniature teddy bears from a Michael’s-like store, why in the world I felt the need to take them is beyond my understanding.
Both times my mother found out (in reality I must have been able to hide them better if I didn’t want to get caught) and she took me back to the store where I had to return them. I think I remember being more humiliated than being scared.
I would never do any such thing now, I have way too much social anxiety to risk getting caught and looking like a tool :loser: Why is it most kids feel the need to attempt something like this? Is it just curiosity? Is it the lack of understanding of money? Obviously they know it’s wrong otherwise they wouldn’t hide it.
What did you steal as a kid and why do you think you did it? If you never stole is there a reason behind that too?
