Taking Things - Stealing
Related Courses
Even though taking things is common among children in care, it can still be upsetting for parents. However, if parents focus on determining the source of the behavior, they can help prevent the children from developing a serious problem. This course explores several reasons for taking things, including experimentation, intellectual disability, trauma history, and social or psychiatric problems, and how to teach acceptable behaviors to children who take things.

At the end of this course, you will be able to:

  • list four common reasons for taking things
  • understand how a child expresses his or her needs through taking things
  • understand how to help encourage a child who takes things verbalize his or her feelings and needs
  • list steps for teaching appropriate replacement behaviors to a child who takes things
  • know when to seek professional help for a child who takes things

This was very informative I did not realize there were so many other reasons children take things.
