Help!!! Our easy child is almost 11. She will not stop lying!!! We have done everything to punish her. Nothing effects her. We have taken away the tv, radio, magazines, Nintendo DS, interent, friends, phone all at the same time once. We have given her chores to punish...I'm out of ideas. Nothing effects her. She mostly lies about grades. We asked her this morning if she had any graded papers in her bag. We asked three times giving her the chance to tell the truth. She said no. She knew we would look. WHY LIE if you KNOW your going to get caught???? I don't get it. We are not hard on our kids about grades. We expect them to apply themselves but don't expect genius kids. She studied her tail off for a science test two weeks ago, we helped her. she ended up bringing home a 71 on the test. We told her we were so proud of her. Mostly because she tried. Any ideas on why she is lying? Any suggestions on punishments??? I'm out of ideas!! The only recourse I can think of now is to stay in my PJ's and go to school all day with her!!!! HELP!
