What would you do if you had a close family member staying with you & you caught
them stealing from you? I'd like to know how you would feel & what you would do?
Feel free to give your opinion.

My dad & I did confront him & he lied about it. He said that he wasn't going to keep it
that he was going to give it back.He lies alot, so I don't know whether to believe him
or not. But he is family & I love him, but the last few years have been tough on me
with other things going on too, & I feel this has only added to my problems. I really
don't trust him either. I hope he won't do this anymore & if he would have ask for it
we might have let him have it. But he didn't, if anyone else has anything else to say
feel free to say it. Thanks...

Also, we have done everything we can to help him. And this really hurts to know that
he would do this to us. We have gone out our way to help.

Family hurt you worse than any one.Brutal truth.Thieves just assume if your family it will blow over.More than likely noone else will let him steal from them again so family becomes their latest victims.Try this.Warn him if he visits from now on he will be searched before leaving since his obvious choice is to steal from your home.Better yet let him spend the night and take everything he walked in with including shirt off his back shoes ect....Offer nothing in return.Bet you wont have to worry about that thief any longer.
Take care

sounds like u have an addict living with u. I kno from experience as I am in recovery. It is easier for one to steal from family because it's right in front of them and less likely they will get n trouble for stealing it.

First time i ever in my life stole from anyone was fairly recent when an addict relative came to my home to stay as i was trying to help her get her life together.She caught me gone and went through every inch of my home to steal.I waited and when i got the chance took just enough to let her know someone had gotten her.She got it.Addicts have no conscience and could care less who they hurt.Not my first rodeo.Just too trusting at one point.Watching her reaction to a thief spoke volumes.She will never be alowed in my home again.Never let your guard down.Never assume you wont become the next victim.

You have to let go of the he's family part ! Did he think of family while he was stealing from you ? NO he didn't so that eliminates him as family for this situation . Next how valuable was the item is it a nothing item or small amount of money or sizable amount ? No matter which , he has to go and right away or if given time to leave he wll take more on his way out . Show him you mean business and won't put up with his shit because he is playing on you love and kindness right now , is he involved in drugs? If so no question about it must go now and call the cops on him for stealing from you , you have to show tough love this time for not only your sake but his too , if you care about him like you said you do because if he lies and steals from you he's out doing it to others as well not only you so it's wake up time and be smart and end the bullshitt part now so you can both be on the road to recovery
