My 5 year old has begun lying all of the time. Small lies like she will tell me she cleaned up the table after meals and I will go check to find it a mess and big lies like she will blame my two year old for getting into closets (where cleaning chemicals are) or food items that my two year old cannot access because of child safety locks or how high up the item is. The part I'm really struggling with, is that no matter how I approach the situation it is a long stressful process to get the truth out of her even when it's blatantly obvious. I try to talk through what happened with her and her made up stories don't make sense but it's as if she fully believes that she is telling me the truth. How can I fix this if she doesn't think she's lying?
