I thought parents are suppose to teach their kids from right and wrong. This is ridiculous letting her kids do the dirty work.

True that Kurtis, Children may not know, but a mother of children should defiantly know better. Its wrong having your children steal. We are currently living under a bad economy but there is no excuse for that kind of behavior and to teach children to grow up that way.
