Hello! I am writing for suggestions about what to do with a first grade student who is stealing food from others' lunchboxes. This child eats a very wholesome, sugar free, gmo free diet, and was taking food items that her parents would never pack for her. ( Understandable! ; ) I teach in a k-4 classroom and the child did it for many months last year before getting caught. After speaking with the parent, she thought offering her some special treat may solve the problem. And it did until recently. It is reoccurring and today she even took cough drops and cough lollipops from our medication bin and put them all in her bag! The parents are asking for advice and I think this may need to be a topic raised with her pediatrician or a mental health professional. She also exhibits some perfectionist qualities. I wonder if she is developing a hoarding habit?
