PASSAGE (3)

3. Read the given passage and answer the questions that follow:

Kids of all ages – preschoolers to teens can be tempted to steal for different reasons. Very young children sometimes take things they want without understanding that things cost money and that it’s wrong to take something without paying for it. Elementary school children usually know they’re not supposed to take something without paying for it, but they may take it anyway because they lack enough self control. Preteens and teens know they are not supposed to steal, but they may steal for the thrill of it or because their friends are doing it. Some might believe they can get away with it. As they are given more control over their lives, some teens may steal as a way of rebelling.

There may be more complex reasons why some children and teens steal. They may be angry or want attention. Their behaviour may reflect stressful problems they are having at home, at school, or with friends. Some may steal as a cry for help because of emotional or physical abuse they are enduring at home. In other cases, kids and teens might steal to get popular name- brand items. In some cases, they may take things to support drug habits.

Whatever the reason for stealing, parents need to find out the root of the behaviour and address other underlying problems, like drug abuse, that may face. When a child has been caught stealing, a parent’s reaction should depend on whether it’s the first time or there is a pattern of stealing. With very young children, parents need to help them understand that stealing is wrong – that when you take something without asking or paying for it, it hurts someone else. If a preschooler takes a piece of candy, for instance, parents can help the child return the item. If the child has already eaten the candy, parents can take the child back to the store to apologise and pay for it.

On the basis of the reading of the passage, answer the following questions carefully.

a. Why do little children tend to steal?
