Hi everyone,

I have a beautiful DD (9) and she has had a history of telling lies.

I don't think you're being too harsh, the punishment here would be pretty strict, because she did two big things wrong - first, she forged your name on the papers, this isn't a little thing like sneaking some oreos up to her room.

Lieing is a tough problem to fix, but I definately do not think you are being too harsh!!!

I too don't think you are being too harsh. Let her know that lying is not acceptable and that because she lied and then lied to cover the first lie is the reason for the punishment. She made a choice to do something she knew she shouldn't have and then when asked about it made another choice to lie about it. Let her know that you still love her but that her decisions were wrong and that is what has you upset.

Can you increase her visits to the therapist?
