  • Wow

    Well, I think you need to have a talk with her grandmother and start punishing.

  • Just remember when you were that age and try to be patient with her. You might also want to talk to the grandmother...

  • First and foremost, I would put Grandma in her place. I would also limit the amount of time they spend together until your daughter learns that you are the boss and until Grandma learns some boundaries.

  • Keep her away from grandma, and tell them both why. Set limits for her and stick to them. Tell her what the punishment will be for each time she lies.

  • oh yuck! Thats not good. I would sit down and have a "come to Jesus" talk about how lieing will ultimately lead to you not trusting her. I wouldnt yell or threaten.

  • play back,,thats the best way i can think of, my mother used to mess with me when i would do that and it would confuse me and i would stop, it will also make the bond between you closer, she will one day understand
