She lies about stupid things directly to my face it's driving me crazy! We have bigger consequences for the lie than the misdeed and she still does it. She's not even good at it!Answer Question

There are some good books about being honest and telling the truth. It would be good to read one or two together and then talk about it. Explain why it is important to tell the truth. Explain what happens when you don't tell the truth. A book can be a great help to get the message across to a child because it is written on their level to help them understand. http://astore.amazon.com/wwwcjkidzcom3-20?%5Fencoding=UTF8&node=18

My daughter just turned 7 this month and she lies all the time and the worst part is she is really good at it. I have even caught her teaching my 2 and 3 year olds how to lie and sneak around very quietly. I dont know why she does this and it makes me very mad and stressed. She lies in school to teachers and other kids and has even said crazy big whoppers like a playtime bruise on her arm was from me punching her!!!When I try to talk to her about it she plays dumb and answers with something like " thats why we dont supposed to lie cuz you have to be good." I cant make sense of her constant impulse to lie sneak and hide things but it scares and worries me out of my mind...if you get any good answers please pass them on... in the same leaking boat I feel for your situation. :)
