She's right, it could have been avoided- had she taught her child that stealing is not ok and that tantrums don't get you everything you want. Sheesh.

Wow, unless something changes, she is so going to regret this one day.

Sometimes I feel like all I do is say no. My DS took a little dinosaur from daycare once, I did not realise till I was unpacking his bag. We had a big talk about what belongs to us and others and we made him give up back to the centre director and apologise. He has not brought anything home since.
My kids throw tantrums when I say no sometimes and occasionally it's embarrassing etc. but hey, parenting is a rough, tough and embarrassing gig some days.

Goodness that child needs a serious dose of no!
My DD came home from daycare wearing a cars watch, didn't look particularly cheap either. She was adamant that a kids mum had brought them in for everyone in her class for the kids birthday. My DD isn't one to tell porkies but I though here we go, this is the start. I made her take it back the next day and stand with me while I spoke to the room leader. Turns out DD was right and they were presents but I'd rather know for sure than be the mother of the kleptomaniac in the room!!

Wow! Poor kid really, it's just lazy parenting on mums behalf.
It's tough toughing out the no's and standing your ground, it's like warfare but the alternative is this kid!

Sounds like a crap mother who needs parenting classes.

Yes let's spend out time ensuring our children avoid hearing no, having tantrums or developing as considerate people.
What an idiot. Good luck lady!

This sounds like my ds. Every time we go to leave playgroup he tries to leave with some cars. I make him put them back and explain they aren't his ect, the biggest tantrum follows. Usually I say my goodbyes first because the screaming prevents it.
He doesn't get his own way all the time, he is 2 and doesn't understand.

Playing devil's advocate.......maybe the mother was having a bad day and was at the end of her rope and was trying to get on her way with the minimum of fuss. Maybe she intended to strip the toys out of his pockets & return them the next day but didn't express her intentions well due to her stress levels
Or....maybe she's just a monster
