So my son is 9 and he is starting to get this attitude lately towards me and that is not him at all.He has also started being bossy even telling me "No not right now" when he is asked to do something. Then he decided Sunday to lie to his Uncle about taking a shower and when I asked him he lied about lying. This morning he took out the garbage becasue of course its garbage day and I told him to wash his hands after he went inside he came back out and his hands weren't wet and its also laundry day and there are no clean towels out yet so how did he dry his hands. I asked him if he washed his hands and he lied again and after I pointed out that he lied he said " OKay I know there was no reason for lying I don't know why I did it". So I am asking if anyone has any thoughts or advice on this I think he should have some kind of punishment besides "The Lecture".
