Every day we feature the beloved “Strawberry Letter” franchise that is so popular on “The Steve Harvey Morning Show” heard nationwide. Send in your letters and Shirley Strawberry will dish out the necessary advice. Today’s topic: My son is a thief Good morning Steve and crew, I really need help. I have an eight-year-old who is a thief (I’m just calling it what it is.). Steve, please know that I love my baby with all that I have, which is why I am seeking help. I have tried everything that I know to do. I pray without ceasing. I know that the Bible says faith without works is dead and I have faith, but I need help with the works. If this approach is wrong, I am hoping that you or others that may have been down this road can help. I don’t spank my children, I beat(s) my children. I have contacted my local law enforcement but have been told that there is nothing that they can do to my eight-year-old and that there are no programs available for him. I have gotten my other family members involved–my husband (who is in law enforcement), my sisters, my mother, my church deacon, his father and uncles. I have taken everything away from him–his TV, his video games, his guitar lessons. I have a brother who is currently incarcerated that speaks with him every chance he gets. I am at a brick wall. I don’t want to lose my child to the system. He is my baby. Please help. I am listening. I am a lost mother looking for solutions with her baby.
