Comments: I'm afraid he'll never learn.

Heh... Only a man would tell how he caught the kid. LOL.

Never let on what tipped you off. *grin* Make them think you're omnipotent - it helps keep them in line. ;-)

As for the sandwich - have him make it the night before, put the lunch together and put it in the frig - then all he has to do is grab it on his way out the door. I used to have my kids to that.

Are you sure my youngest boy isn't living at your house? He does exactly the same thing. We have him make it the night before, like Teresa suggested, but then he 'forgets' it. He LIKES mooching off the other kids.

He will never learn about financial responsibility until you make him see the light.

Let him keep borrowing money from people (within reason) and let him pay the price for not being able to pay it back, like giving him his possesions to the kid for a payback.

They need to learn very young about financial responsiblity or they will end up like a lot of people who eyes are bigger then their wallets and losing their house, cars, and posessions.
