"On the 12th of April, some time overnight, a house was broken into on Campbell Place in central Wagga.
Respect parenting differences. Support your spouse's basic approach to raising kids - unless it's way out of line. Criticizing or arguing with your partner will do more harm to your marriage and your child's sense of security than if you accept standards that are different from your own.
"Some jewellery was stolen but more importantly there were some electronics taken. We are looking for a Hewlett Packard computer and a thumbdrive.
"The photos of this young boy were on the laptop and unfortunately they were backed up on the thumbdrive that was also stolen.
"We have a poor lady who lives in this town who has lost all her photos of her child, so we are appealing to anyone who has knowledge of where this laptop or thumbdrive is to please return them."

No questions asked
Police have hit a dead end and said that there will be no questions asked if the computer is returned to Wagga Police Station.
"We have exhausted all our inquiries in trying to find out who was responsible," Inspector Telfer said.
"We are just appealing to help this lady out with the hardship that she is going through having lost her baby boy.
"That was almost five years ago but the loss of this property is significant to her.
"The offender may still have this property, it may have been sold, it may be at a pawnbroker, but we are trying to find this property immediately."
Full listening. Try to increase those times that you give your child your undivided attention and are really listening. This does not mean dropping everything every time she speaks.
