I hear and have witnessed that children do bad things for attention. What I don't understand is that I compliment my son on new things he learns, when he says a word better than he used to- even when his coloring is scribble I compliment him. I say that I'm so proud of him, give him a hug and kiss and say good job and high five. There are so many things that I tell him good job. He gets attention-so.....??? any ideas? His father and I are not together and it's been that way since Oct. '07 The lying started 4-5 months ago. I talked to his dad about it, and he said he has no idea. And one main lie he has said a couple times, and very believable, is that my boyfriend spanked him. My bf and I live together but keep every cost in half. I take care of my son, he takes care of his. If one isn't listening the most we do is say "listen to what your mom/dad just told you. Do as they say". He's given Burt (bf) hugs, kisses, tickles..Answer Question
Well I think that is a faze children go through. I know my did the same thing about my boyfriend. They say that he did this and that. Blow things out of per portion. Like if they were playing catch and didn't catch the ball in time he throw it at me. I could be watching. I don't know if they do this because they want you to be with there father. Which is pretty much what every child wants. About the other lying. I say just don't ask questions it sets a child up to lie. Like if you see him hit another child. Don't ask him why did he hit so and so. It just sets them up for lying. I not saying that is what your son is doing exactly. But it is just another idea.
