Hi. I have a 6 year old boy who has been classed as extremly intelligent. He is a Nightmare. He gets up at anytime of the night and comes downstairs. Whist downstairs he will steal food, electrical items, make up, just about anything he can get his hands on. There is no rhyme or reason to what he steals he just has to take something. He will do this during the day also whenever we take our eyes off him.
We have to sit uptairs at night to mke sure he goes to bed and doesn't start mixing potions in the sink with bathroom toiletries etc.
We have tried just about everything but being that intelligent he knows that we can't sit on the naughty step forever etc etc.
