That is me screaming HELP!!! Not sure how to help our difficult child learn that lying is not going to get her anywhere in this life. She has been spouting anything and everything that she thinks will get her either out of trouble or be more "popular". This is happening at school and at home. She is lying even when the person she is lying to calls her on it. And even when she knows the outcome will not be good for her. Her defiance is off the charts. I am at a loss to how to curb these behaviors. Have removed TV privleges, her room is basically her clothes, bed and one stuffy for comfort. The only thing we are allowing is her guided imagery cd's for when she is feeling out of control. Punishments are a joke to her. She really doesn't care if she can't have a friend over or will miss her favorite disney show. She seems content to keep with undesirable behaviors, darned the consequences. Yesterday her SDC teacher called. Asked me when was the last time I saw a behavior log come home. I told her it had been weeks. I ask difficult child daily where the log is and she has some explanation as to why teacher has not sent one home. Teacher said that there was a signature on one from the other day, but apparently I "misspelled" my own name!! Yes, difficult child is now "forging" my signature. UGH! The behaviorist is not even doing her/our assessment until late May. We need help NOW!!! difficult child is so defiant, rude, disrespectful it is unbearable. Her lying is so ridiculous. She will come out of her room stating she made her bed and put away clean clothes. husband or I go in and find room looks like a tornado hit it. Yes, she fed the dogs...dogs bowls are empty. She did her reading at the afterschool program, oh the program didn't sign the form, they were too busy... And on and on and on... I just don't get it. Does she really not think we will see that she has not done these things or that she is signing the logs or that we will not call to check with afterschool program??? I have no idea how to address these issues as she seems to spill "stories" or lies or whathaveyou every second of every day. Her lying has got CPS involved in our lives again. All of these things are dragging our family down and making life at home miserable. I am at my wits end and wondering how to stop the madness. PLEASE HELP!!!
