OK well this past week I found out dd had been lying to me about doing her homework. She is in 4th grade. Yes I know I should check better I know, but last year she did really well, so it didn't occur to me to worry about it. But she lied twice and I would never had known, had I not walked into class to pick her up. Her teacher told me. So after the second time, I sat and watched her. I asked her why she lied and it was because she struggles with some of it. I told her, if she needs help, all she needs to do is ask. I told her lying is just going to make her miss out on fun with her friends and other activities she will want to do. We just rented her a flute to join band. I told her if she keeps lying the flute gets taken away and she might get her party taken away. Her birthday is next month and she wanted a Halloween theme. Would that be to harsh, or should I just take away the flute?
