This has to stop--now. Your stories, your lies, your stealing--all of it. STOP. Friday, when I found out you had been lying to me in little ways all year, I looked at you in a new light. I mean, taking stickers is one thing. But cell phones? mp3 players? GLASSES??? [Yes, I learned that the glasses this child has been wearing all year were stolen. She does not WEAR glasses. I know.] I fear for your future--where will you be in 5 years? Next year, even?
I fear for you, and I ache for you. What happened in your life that caused you to do these things? What can we do to help you? What do you need?
I am at a loss. For now, unfortunately all I think I can do is keep loving you, and pray for you...
