What would you do if you had a close family member steal from you?

link preview on facebook

My niece has stolen expensive jewelry from my mom, my daughter,and myself. Not just jewelry, but other things too. The holidays are here again and we don't know how to handle having her in our homes, but realize it is our own selfish insecurities that she will steal from us again. I feel bad. What would you do about having her over on holidays? Please some suggestions. Thanks!

Time to make an announcement to her privately...steal and go to jail! AND I would put anything of value in a safe place. I would be very tempted to install cameras in those places she has rifled before, hooked to a computer! She may have an illness about stealing and serious professional help. IF she tries to steal from you, it will be recorded...time to bring in her mom and pop! And in fact, perhaps that time has long ago come...if she is a teen or so, I think it is time to inform her parents. You take a chance that mom and dad will become furious with you, so I would have Mom, and anyone else who she has stolen from there to back you up! Happy Thanksgiving.

The first thing that comes to my mind is that she may be on some kind of illegal drugs. Drugs will allow you to steal from your mother, grandmother or any body else. People who are in their right mind might steal from stores or from strangers, but not from their own family. Stealing is illegal no matter how you look at it. I know that the idea of you calling the Police on her may sound cruel but that's what you should do. Unfortunately I had a similar situation and I did not get the Police involved, doing so would have created a very serious situation in my daughter's family. It's important to find out what's her underlying problem and then deal with that first. I know it's not an easy situation but a decision must be made. The age of your niece can also make a big difference when dealing with the Police. If she's under 16, she will only get a good scare from the Police. Good luck.

I want to say I would confront them. At least that's what I would want to do. I hope I'm strong enough if I'm ever confronted with that.

While she's busy stuffing her face & her pockets at your house...I'd be over at her place, taking back all of the stuff she has taken from me over the years. Then I'd photograph the other jewelry & excess stuff she has stashed away & give her a private showing of my findings. I'd let her know that she got off lucky & if she EVER takes another thing from your house or your family....you'll show your photo journal to them. Then I'd beat the crap out of her for good measure. But that's just ME. You might handle things differently in your family.

Tell her you know she is stealing and she must stop or she is not allowed in your homes. That sounds cold. She may either be a klepto-maniac or have a drug habit she is supporting. No excuse for her behavior though. Just set boundaries with anyone who you can't trust.

Tell your niece she's not welcome in your home and tell her why. Tell her she has destroyed your trust in her,but hopefully she can earn your trust again.

Invite her...keep your stuff in a safe place. I would have a serious talk with her or her parents. Stealing is not tolerated in my family at all! Granny...u dont deserve that. Granny you know I love you alot...however the clown below us.....troll material...Kauf it Up....related to Paul Texan...I dont like to snitch however...I dont like TROLLS! And yes..I expose trolls....they are not welcomed in here!
