David has a compulsion about electronic gadgets. He takes them. Doesn’t matter who they belong to.
Today he took his brother’s cell phone.
Tonight, David gave it back without a fit, any lies, or a tantrum.
If it only happens once in a while where he is honest about his takings, and gives things back, that is a victory. Eventually, maybe we can get him trained to stop stealing. But it is huge that he gave an item back without a meltdown.
