I got a note from his teacher yesterday saying that my son was telling other kids at his table that his dad had a gun. No sort of threatening or anything of the sort, more of a "bragging" lie. One of the kids went and told the teacher, and his teacher asked him about. My son lied to her and told her that he only told the other kids that his Dad is a hunter, which was not the truth. He also lies to his teacher at other times to try to get out of trouble. I have no idea where this lie came from. we have no guns in our home. He doesn't watch any shows that glorify guns in any way or violent things. the ONLY thing that I can think of is him overhearing myself and his father talking about the political aspect of gun control that is going on right now. Why does he lie? I understanding kids lying to try to get out of trouble.But why lie about something like that? What is going on with my kid and what do I do?Answer Question
