Well first, I can tell you it is just a phase. He will outgrow it, I am sure of it. I know that does not help you at this point in time with the stiuation. When my son had a bit of a lying streak he was more like 10, my husband made him carry around a note that said "I am a liar, I am not to be trusted. If I know you, chances are I lied to you before. If not I will at some point because everyone is a sucker." He made him carry the note around with him every place we went and before he could talk to people, they had to read his note. Everyone would read it and tell him how awful lying is. He had to do this for a week and I was against it; however, it worked. It snapped him right out of his fibbing phase. Maybe you son is too young, just telling you what worked for mine in the end.
