What does it mean when a child blatantly steals from you?

    Wow! I am in the exact same situation. I'm tired of hiding my stuff and finding things missing and when I ask him about it, he straight up lies to my face..."it wasn't me" or "I don't know what happened to it". Really?!? Him and I are the only ones in this apt, so unless the dog has taken a liking to my vapor or $100 cash, then I think we both know he is lying. As much as it breaks my heart, I have told him to find a friend to stay with by this weekend or i will have the police escort him out. I don't want to see him homeless, but I just can't come home to that smell anymore or wonder what else he has taken from me. Am I a bad mom for not giving 3 mos notice like everyone suggested?
