How should I handle my girlfriends 12 yo son stealing money from me?

I know he took the $10 off the counter before school one day. She wants me to ignore it and continue being nice to him and talking to him.

    Depends on how close you are to her and if your willing to lose her over it. If you make it a big deal and argue with her over it, it could end the relationship. If you ignore it he will def. think you didnt notice it was missing and he will strike again.
    If she was a good mother she would address the problem to her son so he knows not to do it again.

    Thief now, thief later, time to move on and dump this lady and her thieving son. Since it’s OK with her for her son to steal, Do you think it will ever stop??????????????

    Next time you CATCH him taking money, take off your belt, wear his butt out and send him home with the message that he is NEVER to set foot on your property again.
    When the mother appears, apologize to her for having to do HER job that she wouldn’t do.
    Or hold him until the police show up.Then SHE can handle it from their, just make it clear that he is NOT welcome at your home anymore with or without your flaky friend.

    he is 12 years old – that is old enough to be responsible for his behavior – it should be addressed – to not address such an issue is enabling a juvenile delinquent – you can still be nice to him and talk to him, however by all means talk about the theft – in a calm, rational, loving manner – depending on his reaction and his mothers reaction – you would probably be better off without them in your life

    YOU SHOULD NOT IGNORE IT AT ALL ! IF YOU DO HE WILL FEEL LIKE ITS OK TO JUST TAKE THIS FROM AND OTHER PEOPLE. IT DOES NOT MATTER HOW CLOSE YOU ARE WITH HIS MOTHER, YOU SHOULD LET HER KNOW THAT YOU DID NOT APPRECIATE HIM TAKING YOUR $10 EVEN IF IT WAS A $1, ITS JUST NOT RIGHT, BECAUSE YOUR OWN CHILDREN ARE NOT STEALING FROM YOU SO WHY IS IT OK FOR AN OUTSIDER COME AND TAKE IT. I BET WHENEVER HE COMES OVER YOU HAVE TO KEEP AN EYE ON HIM CUZ HE MIGHT TAKE SOMETHING ELSE ! TELL HER HOW YOU FEEL AND IF SHE GETS UPSET , SHE WILL COME AROUND AND REALIZE THAT HER SON IS A THIEF AND IF SHE DOES NOT PUT A STOP TO IT, HE WILL CONTINUE TO STEAL AND BIGGER THINGS AT THAT….. AND DON’T LET HER TRY AND GIVE YOU THE MONEY BACK TO BRUSH IT OFF………..

    She wants you to ignore the fact that you are being stolen from?

    She doesn’t sound like a keeper if she really doesn’t care that much. You also might want to talk to your girlfriend’s parents about the money being stolen, and ask them to give it back to you.

    If I was you, I would stop seeing this woman, no matter how you feel for her. She obviously cannot control her child. But I would not hit the child because that will make him mad causing him to possibly steal again. You should let the mother deal with her son.
