My kid sneaks food. He even steals money from us to buy junk food. We're awfull frustrated. Any ideas on how can I get him to change would really be appreciated.

yeah i have a reply, you shouldn't buy the food.-just keep it locked up somewhere. and dont give him the money! hide ur money! keep it ur pockets! but dont worry....tell him it will catch up 2 him if he doesn't stop=)

I am not a parent, I'm only 14. But I do the same thing. If you can't find me, I'm at Walgreen's getting candy. It's just so good! I usually eat two King Sized Reeses things everyday. Now I'm starting to gain some weight. But the thing is, I don't care! Just try to get him to eat healthy food and talk to him about eating to much junk and what will happen to him if he doesn't stop.

INSIST on snacking, but on healthy and/or low calorie snacks. Hang a bucket of salad around his neck and let him go to town on it!
