difficult child asked me to take him to the bank this weekend so he could cash in his change he has been saving. husband was out of town but seemed suspicious that he would have as much as he was thinking he would. We went to the bank but the change machine was broken. husband came home and checked his can that he had been saving change in for a night away. Half the can was empty. difficult child would not admit to stealing. Today he cashed in his change and had $50. We are very disappointed in him and husband even more so because difficult child is always glued to his hip and they do a lot together. husband talked to him about how he could get into legal trouble now that he is an adult. difficult child knew husband was upset and spent most of the day in his room still not admitting to anything. At one point I went in to talk to him and said if he was feeling sad then he needed to own up to things and apologize. He shook his head and about an hour later went and apologized to husband and admitted to taking the change. I'm glad he finally owned it and told him even though he doesn't know how much he stole he should give at least half of the money to husband. We'll see if he follows through.
