Almost every child in the early childhood took an item that was not his own without permission and brought it home, even in his room did not hesitate to exhibit. Parents who encounter many items brought by their children from their friends' house during infancy and from the classroom environment in pre-school period are firstly panicked and then very upset. They are ashamed that their children have done so and are afraid to share the situation with others, even with their children's teachers.
However, according to many experts today, it is not considered “theft” behavior of children up to the age of 6-7 to take the belongings of others without permission. Because the feeling of having these ages is not fully developed in children, when a child sees more beautiful toys than his toys or sees better things than his own things, he can take them without permission and does not perceive this as a misconduct.
When you read this article, there may be some of you who say “my child has a sense of possession, because my child protects his belongings and does not give them to others”. However, we should note that most children do not want to give their toys to other children, but the main reason behind this is that children do not have a sense of ownership, but the feeling of sharing has not yet developed.
The occurrence of stealing behavior as behavior disorder in children occurs after the age of 9-10. Therefore, if parents observe their children with any stealing behavior at this age, they should seek immediate help from an expert and intervene in the case of specialist counseling.

What are the main reasons for playing behavior?

• Parents punish the child for failing to meet the financial needs of the child, addiction or stinginess to the child, use the money as a threat to the child, or fail to meet the child's physical needs due to economic difficulties.
• If the child feels worthless and has a lack of self-confidence, he may feel valuable by stealing the items he deems valuable.
• The child is extremely jealous of his or her friends and turns the stealing behavior into a revenge.
