I have been wondering what causes many people to shoplift. Especially kids cause me concern because I fear when they start at that age it may become a life long habit.
I have also wondered if teens dare each other for kicks. Can someone give me insight because I have found that a family member has made a practice of it and she can't do it because she lacks for anything material and she has two good parents who participate in her sports and church life. I don't understand the reason it happens. Can anyone enlighten me?

I discovered not long ago of an adult who was caught and charged. It was a person I would never thought to do something like that. Later I was told she had a history of stealing. This person was an older person! One who should know better and looked to have no need to steal.

It is people who get a rush from it. They find it exciting. They also really have no respect for the law. However will act surprised when they are caught and have to pay the consequences for their actions.

Do you think teens dare each other to steal or perhaps it is a rite of passage of some sort?

I am no expert but I have heard the so called experts say it is a sickness. I don't know if I buy that because the word sickness or illness is a cop out in a lot of situations. I had some clothes stolen once by a family member. I was a 12 and she was a 3 so that didn't make sense. Her mom found them and sent them back to me. In some cases I think it is the rush.
