I have an 8 year old daughter - who for the past 2 months has been lying. She'll lie about the little things and the big things...why - who knows! It started with a new friend she made at school...who was telling her who she could play with and what to say to her other friends...basically outcasting my daughter from all her friends. I finally caught on after a couple of weeks...but she lied about it saying it wasn't happening. But it was as 5 parents were concerned about my daughter as she is always one to make everyone happy, never hurting any one feelings.
Anyways, she lied 1 1/2 weeks ago again after about 8 times...so we grounded her from everything - tv, friends, playing outside, and her favorite baby she sleeps with (which I thought would do it)- she was just about done her week, and she lied again. :-( I'm at wits end as to what to do - I've done everything - we've smacked her maybe 2 times tops, we don't spank, and would hate to use that alternative.
I need ideas! It's apparently not working not letting her do anything - you guys have any ideas what I could try? She's even started lying at school for the past week - with her teacher. Help!
