My daughter is funny, smart, pretty and sweet. She charms everyone around her by telling them anything that they want to hear--she is pretty good at reading people. But, I can't trust her. We have caught her in lies more times than I can count. Little things like where she was or big things like that she had a job. She went for a month or so with us thinking that she had a job when in reality she did not. She was going to the community college, but I'm not even sure if she had continued that, we can't trust her to tell us the truth. Out of desperation, we sent her to a five week program to become a CNA. She was all for it and finished well. (We have the certificate). Now she won't get a job. She says she has applied places, but nothing. She totaled her car, so she has no vehicle and I don't let her use mine often. She complains about chores. I want her to get a job, buy a car and move out. Help???Answer Question

Sound's like you have been living too much of her life for her now she doesn't know how to function and make her own choices... too much "we" in this explanation. You need to butt out and let her be an individual separate from you. Why does she need to lie to you?? If she feels you are asking her to be what you want her to be she will continue to lie. Let her be herself for a change and see where it takes her. Be patent & supportive. When you back off she will be able to find her own way, figure out who she wants to be - not what you want her to be.
