What should I do if MY child is the bad influence?
What is your child doing? What are you doing to try to correct their behavior?
Not enough info, I think everything that a child does wrong should be a different punishment.
Not enough info, but if she is acting up you need to parent her.
Who and how are they influencing?
My daughter is 13 has ADHD. Some of her issues include impulse control and slow mental maturity. She has taken to lying and embelishing stories to get attention at school. Parents have heard the comments she makes and she does not get repeat invites to friends houses.
That is hard to admit. I have one of my sons that is basically always been my difficult child and I find you have to just let them learn the hard way. Especially if you have taken him to years of different forms of counseling. So I would say if you have not tried to get a counseling for your child you need to see if see will respond to that and he may rebel as my soon has and be come more defiant but the system is very easy on kids that behave badly until they hit High School my son is the type he want to learn the hard way and I pray yours is not. But it may be a reality hard for a parent to realize true. Good Luck.
Do you punish her for lying? You may have to try several different ways before finding what works w/ her.
