My daughter and I were shopping and my daughter wanted to look at the toys, she wanted to look at the Shopkins to be exact. I told her to stay in that area and not to move until I get her. Anyways she knows that i do not have enough money to buy the items as Christmas is coming and I am getting gifts. I was going to get her the Shopkins and say it is from Santa and that is another reason that I did not buy them for her that day. My daughter is eight years old and still believes in Santa. Well my daughter I don't know why but she was tempted to steal the Shopkins put them in her backpack. I had just picked her up after school and took her shopping for groceries. Unfortunately she was cot by your plains clothes security and they took her to the office along with me. I know that she did wrong, and she is grounded for it. I confisciated her other Shopkins for a week. I am not happy about how the security handled this. Keep in mid that this is an eight year old girl who was frightened by an average sized male. It is my job as a parent to punish her. Now she is not allowed to shop without an adult present(like I would have allowed her to enter the store alone in the first place.) She is to stay within my sight. But I would like to know a few things?
1. Will they report to my daughter's school about her shoplifting.
2. Will she be charged by juvenile court.
3. Can they send her to a juvenile facility later on if they want to press charged?
4. Can they press any charges now? They let her off with a warning and she sure won't do it again, but can they still change their mind and charge her, and if they do will she have to go to a juvenile facility?
