The lying has nothing to do with the ADHD. My son has ADHD and has not lied to me yet. The few times I have caught him it was normal things tweens and teens lie about (homework is done or he didn't have any). It may just be that he is forgetting things, which is normal for ADHD, actually it is a HUGE part of ADHD. When your son lies, have him write dictionary pages, just open the dictionary to any page and that is the one he writes out, word for word. Let your son know that if he keeps lying, when he really needs someone to believe him, they won't.
