My newly just turned 4 last month year old is starting to constantly lie. like saying his sister did something that he did, or lie about being in time out (like i work at his school and if i see him in time out i'll ask him why and he'll say he's not, even though i know he is. or if i put him in time out at home, he'll tell dh he didn't do anything, or that he wasn't in it at all)
today he lied like 10 times! i don't know what to do about it! i've told him it makes me sad, it makes me very upset. i've put him in time out for it, growled at him for it, and even spanked him about it. NOTHING is getting through to him!
as for the spitting, he's always spitting. today he drew the line when he deliberately spit in another kids' face at school today. he got in SOOO much trouble for that [by me]. of course i gave him the "we ONLY spit when we brush our teeth, NOT on our friends" speech. he also got a pop on the butt [one] and had time out.
i'm at a loss at what to do about his behavior...any advice from those that have been through this? i know kids learn this on their own...but jeez!!
WOW! I would call Super Nanny. Or at least watch some of her videos and see if you can find one where she deals with those behaviors. I can't even imagine! I would lose my shit if my child spit on another.
