easy child 2's mom messaged me last night. Her computer is broken and she didn't think easy child 2 was telling the truth about her homework assignments, she asked me to log on and check the assignments. I did. *** easy child 2 lied to us on Wed, and her mom last night, about her homework. She lied to us both about asking her math teacher for help, and told us she asked her science teacher for help, but the science teacher refused to answer her, not once, but twice. *** It is the third week of school. *** I know she has problems. She was tested a couple years ago and does have minor working memory problems, but the school did not deem them substantial enough to warrant extra assistance, nor did the docs. Behaviorally, she's ok. Typical tween and somewhat catered to/spoiled (not held accountable for much) and the junk that goes along with that, but does not seem to be particularly out of the context of "normal", when you consider at home, she gets away with this (for lying last night, there is no repurcussion with her mother.) *** She claims to "forget" anything that isn't convenient. The lie about the math teacher....first she said she talked to him, then when I reminded her that I would verify with him, she said she forgot that she didn't have time and didn't do it. She lies all the time. I don't know where to begin to discern what's her choosing to not do anything and what might be a real problem for her. *** I do have her in counseling. Is there anything more we should even try to do? We are working with a lawyer to get visitation modified so we have her more, but that is at least a year away...anything else we should look into doing with her?
