The Worst Lie My Four Year Old Has Ever Told....
I got home for lunch today and my husband was visibly upset. He said he got called back by my daughter's preschool teacher today when he went to pick her up. She told her teacher that my husband hit her in the stomach and I hit her in the eye last night and that her "mimi" which is my mom, was upset about it. None of this ever happened and she's been in this lying phase lately that I don't like. The preschool director said she doesn't think there is a threat, but if she thought so, she would have called CPS. I am very upset by this. We do spank occasionally, and I give her a little arm squeeze when she's bad sometimes just to get her attention, but we are never and have never been abusive parents or did the things she spoke of.
I feel helpless because she's been lying a lot lately about things, blaming things on her little sister and acting out at times. I thought it was getting better lately but obviously not. It's now worrying me what she is going to school and telling people.
We thought it might be that she needs more attention, so we've set aside time to take her by herself, without little sis, on a fun day. We tried lunch and movie a few months ago and she was horrible. She acted out the whole time and we had to leave a half hour into the movie. When we asked her what was wrong and why she was acting like that, she said she was jealous that her aunt got to watch her sister but she didn't get to be there.
