Me and my husband have custody of our 5yr old niece & 7yr old nephew and we also have 2 boys of our own. The 7yr old told us that he went to school and told his teacher that we are mean to him and we know it is to get attention.Now i feel like she belives him because hes a child.We are not mean to him we love him and it hurts us that he would tell someone that lie and make people think we are terrible parents. Hes done this before and we have talked to him about lieing now we do not know what to do.Can anyone give me some advice? Please!!!!!Answer Question

I agree with mrseum...and will add to just state when He is "using his imagination" that he needs to write that down "cause that's a good one". My mom died when I was six and I remember making things up to get "noticed". I didn't feel wanted and wasn't wanted ( I found out later, it was only for the money). Make sure I feels wanted before puberty rears its ugly head...trust me. An unhappy teenager is a very ugly thing.
