Despite that there are many factors causes of stealing, it is very bad for people or any one to steal from others. And it is always better for people (most especially the young ones) to work hard, in other to avoid stealing stealing from others. There is always a penalty attach to stealing.

Kleptomania, or compulsive stealing, is a common cause of theft that many forget about. This type of stealing is about a psychological compulsion instead of a desire to profit or gain something material or financial.

Kleptomania is a recurrent failure to resist the urge to steal. In most cases of kleptomania, the person steals things that they don’t need. The items stolen are often of little to no value, and they could often easily afford the item if they had decided to pay. This is unlike most cases of criminal theft, where items are stolen either out of need or because they’re very expensive or valuable.

Many other factors besides kleptomania can cause a person to steal. Some people steal as a means to survive (which is never advisable) due to economic hardship (the best thing to do is to work hard). Others simply enjoy the rush of stealing, or steal to fill an emotional or physical void in their lives.

Stealing may be caused by jealousy, low self-esteem, or peer-pressure. Social issues like feeling excluded or overlooked can also cause stealing. People may steal to prove their independence, to act out against family or friends, or because they don’t respect others or themselves.

While parents can find it unsettling, it’s not common for young children to steal small things without knowing better. Young children, especially those under the age of 5, are prone to taking things that excite them. When you notice your young toddler or child stealing, you can teach them that it’s wrong.

Adults often have very different reasons for stealing than children do. Adults are more likely to steal out of financial need than children. This often makes up a large portion of criminal theft.
