I have an 8 year old step son who was suspended from school today for having a pocket knife with him. He lied about it to the teacher, principal, and me. It was in his grandma's desk that she gave us, thought the drawers were empty, but I guess not. We are very good about keeping anything dangerous out of reach and sight.
But what should I do? We don't spank. He is a perpetual liar and we have tried everything to get him to stop.
Any ideas would be helpful. Thank you.

Well, if what your doing isn't working, change it. Obviously it's not working or he wouldn't have done it to start with. I agree with Nanny B.
