Any advice on handling lies? My daugther has started lying about everything/anything to the point I don't know what to believe.
Sometimes it's to pull pranks, which I told her pranks are funny and okay, however you need to fess up and laugh with everybody, you can't keep them up.
Once she found a bracelet which she really liked. I told her first off you don't pick things up you find in the parking lot, but if you do you need to bring it to the lost and found because the owner will want it back. Next day she says she found the owner who said she could have it. I asked her who it was and she said a girl from school. I am friends with her father so I said I would shoot him a Facebook message just to thank him for raising such a thoughtful child. So my daughter says, oh no, it was a different girl. The other girl she named we see walking to school every morning, so I said alright, we'll thank her and her mother in the morning. She played it right to the end and ran up to her to whisper in her ear what she'd done, so I went straight to her mother and asked if her daughter had a similar bracelet, and of course no she didn't. I let my daughter continue to school and waited until she got home and I cooled off to approach her. I told her that I was tempted to call the school and have them announce over the loud speaker so the entire school could hear that she needed to return the stolen bracelet to the office. I told her I would give her one more chance to do the right thing and bring the bracelet to lost and found the next day, otherwise I would do just that. So the next morning I walked her into school and she put the bracelet in the box.
I'm not sure what repricussions would be suitable when I discover she's lying and what I should do/say to her.
