Try: #avoid arguing with the cr #try nonverbal reassurances such a gentle touch or hug respond to the feeling behind the accusation and then reassure the cr for example you might say i see that you are upset about this let’s see if we can find out what what’s happened together #if the cr is confused try to locate any favorite hiding places used by the cr for storing objects which are later assumed to be lost check these spots first when the cr reports losses #help the cr look for missing objects and then move into another activity #if the cr suspects money is missing try limiting the amount of cash the cr keeps on hand consider withdrawing cash allowance in weekly installments rather than monthly #offer the cr a chance to look over each monthly recent bank statement to verify that nothing out of the ordinary is happening with his or her money
