As an Educational Assistant you are leading a group converstation with 12 grade 4 students. They are having a discussion about the story that they have just read about a boy who has stolen a toy from a local corner store. The conversation has turned to the topic of theft, and Collette a student raises her hand to make a comment. You call her name and she says " That boy in the story must have come from X country my dad says everybody from that country steals"
How would you rephrase the problematic speech to be more acceptable?
Can You give any suggestions to help me?

That child must have come from an under developed country where toys are available mostly to children from affluent families.
