It's really a long story but to cut to the chase...difficult child got caught lying/stealing (like everyday) at school. His math teacher called me to confirm his story. She said difficult child was in tears and very upset about her not believing him. So much so that she thought it best to call me. He was lying. It's like he actually convinces himself these "lies" are true. He does it at home with- me all the time and gets very angry --yelling and screaming and cryiing that I don't believe (he lies 80-90% of the time). could he convince himself it's all true? The rest of us see right through it. What do you all think?
