So you also teach your kids how to steal, because teaching them that it is illegal is pointless?
Well yes and no, but let's start with the no:
The same reasoning about why it's pointless does not really apply there. Stealing real life stuff is usually neither necessary nor easy (comparatively). Paying for stuff IRL is certainly possible for children (with cash) and is a good alternative to trying to steal it.
As for the yes: sure, teach them the basics of Not Getting Caught. They are probably going to (try to) shoplift some small items - most likely snacks. It would be better if they get that out of their system without getting caught.
