  1. I am of the opinon that a child steals because of the genes inherited and peer influence. I know many children from very poor parents who do not steal. They are contented with what their parents give them. Doctors have their own way of classifying this condition. It is as a result of an urge that the person cannot control. The Yorubas are proud of saying ” if I don’t have I will beg” .” Omo ba ni a toro”. Parents have to tell their children not to beg or steal. Be content with what you have. Some don’t have and they don’t steal!
