My 10 year old was caught stealing is this something that kids go through?

I caught my son with a pack of gum he didn't buy over the weekend. Monday morning I took him back to the store and made him tell the manager what he did and pay for it. Afterwards I explained to him that if the manager would have called the cops he'd have a record for stealing that stays with him. His reasoning for doing this was because he thought his little sister was going to get 1 more than him, which she didn't he just assumed so. Is this normal for kids to do? I'm was an only child so I never had to deal with the sibling rivalry stuff.
