I have a six year old boy, with a very active imagination. He is constantly telling me stories and I love it, but I'm concerned that when something that I need to take care of happens, I won't be able to tell the difference because he also has a habit of lying.
For example, they have been talking a lot about bullying at his school and how to prevent it, well the last few weeks he tells me that he is being bullied by his classmates but when I brought it up with his teacher it was obviously the first time she had heard of it and my son kept looking down at his shoes while he told her about it.
I want to believe him and fight for him when he needs me, but I don't know how to do that when 9 times out of 10 whatever he is telling me is made-up. And to make matters worse he has started asking me why I don't believe him! Help me please!!
