While the caregiver is not looking, Ben puts the gum in his pocket. As Ben and his caregiver leave the store, they are stopped by the owner who saw Ben put the gum in his pocket. The owner is angry and tells the caregiver that she should give Ben a paIDling so he will learn that stealing is wrong. Ben’s caregiver is a psychology graduate student.
