“Tell me why you are stealing and I will help you be a good person.”
When 8-year-old Wendy Chay-Son’s Lake Worth, Florida home was burglarized last month, the second grader decided to teach the thief a lesson.
A few days after her family’s jewelry, clothing, and a tablet were stolen, Wendy wrote a letter to the thief and taped it on the window next to their front door.
She told WPBF that she wanted them to see the message if they returned.
“This is for the robbers,” her letter reads. “Please do not steal in this house. There are good kids and people in this house. We are people who do not steal. We are sad that you have been stealing in this house."
Wendy hopes that her letter will inspire the thief never to steal again. "I wrote that letter so they could change and don't steal in anybody's house," she told the local news station.
"My dad is working hard and you are not. You are just stealing stuff. Tell me why you are stealing and I will help you be a good person,” the letter went on to say. “I hope you will change and be good. God will forgive you."
