tarana Posted September 14, 2012 Share Posted September 14, 2012 (edited) My dd(10) has been lying about almost everything off-late. about finishing her school work, throwing trash, just about everything. 2 days ago she told my DH that I ate all their snacks. Fact is, I find them yucky. Today I find several snack wrappers in her desk. This I understand because we curb her sugar intake. What worries me is her lying about finishing her school work. Tonight I open her book and she has done only 1 problem out of 30. Her sister had difficulty & was asking questions about it earlier.She said it was a easy worksheet and finished it quickly. Yesterday, she was telling her sister to write answers on her palm and was telling her it is not considered cheating because no one will know. She is now getting gifts from her friends. Not sure what she giving them in return. My policy is you need something ask me, don't take it from others. I can't be policing her all the time. Is this a 10 yr old trying take control or bad companionship? How do you stop this behavior? Edited September 14, 2012 by tarana Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
