Does anyone have a bipolar child and does part of their behavior consist of lieing? We have been wading through the endless sea of therapist, doctors, etc tirelessly for the last 4 months. My Difficult Child child had her "break" in November and it has been exhausting since. Last weekend we have a major hit. We have been dealing with lies before but now she has lied about her dad. He is devestated and we found out from another parent from school. The good thing is we finally have a therapist that is going to be good for her and her doctor finally listened about the mood swings. The only diagnosis we had was depression/anxiety. No one has said bi polar yet but they at least placed her on abilify to help with the moods. We are only on day two. All of this has torn my family apart and her older sisters don't want to deal with her. Anyway I digress. Is the lieing then denying that she remembers saying it part of the bipolar? Thanks everyone.
