Does anyone have any advice on how to put an end to this? My son was doing it previously, stopped, and has now started again. When no one is around he is taking snack food, sugar packets, cereal, frozen cans of juice, ice cream containers, etc from the fridge and cupboards, eating them, and trying to hide the evidence. I already have to lock (as in with a padlock) all the cereal, treats, and the majority of our snack foods in the pantry because I would be packing school lunches and find out half the boxes were empty.
He gets enough to eat and drink, I don't understand why he feels the need to sneak around. I've tried talking to him to find out why but all he says is "I don't know". I don't know what else to try, I'm at my wits end.
