If he/she is your best friend, you don't approve the behavior. How do you stop him/her?

Firstly I would talk to them and tell them this is not right. I would tell them as many times as necessary, hoping they would listen to me. If they didn't, I don't know what I would do, I would have to find myself in that situation, but I don't think I would do anything, like for instance calling the cops. No, I wouldn't. But my relationship with my friend would probably end or at least take a break until they changed they shoplifting habit.

YES, I thought to take a break is a good way for both side and follow the situation developed.
THINKS.

Don't really care. It's their business. Who am I to judge when I shoplifted before? :oops: :lol:

really? :shock: :lol: lennyetran shoplifted before??.. just curious..what made you do it?

if i had a friend who shoplifts..i would tell him/her that its not good.. but if he/she keeps on doing it..i'll inform his/her 'rents..afterall, it's their child, not mine..they'll have to do whatever they believe is right a punishment...if it doesn't work,then i guess i did my part as a friend, that's the extent i could help him/her..i'm not calling the cops or what..gosh..we're friends afterall..

If he never listen your advise
I will always folow him and loud calls all and yell his action, he will never steal anything !
it's a good idea
but it's only your body bigger than him if not you will come the hospital soon !!!
