impulsive lying in 10 year old daughter. Help!
Hi there. I just stumbled upon this website last night and am so thankful that I did. We have a 10 year old daughter who we adopted from Ethiopia at the age of five. She has been on meds for about a year and has made huge strides in her ability to focus at school but she continues to compulsively lie. She even went so far recently to manifest a lie about someone else out of the blue. She said she was excited about Christmas and she just shared this lie with me. In her mind it just made sense. We have noticed more ‘spaciness’ lately and already have an appt with our pediatrician to discuss med adjustment next week. Do any of you struggle with lying from your children?? I’m also st a loss for hos to discipline for this. Lying is so offensive to my husband and I but if she truly can’t help it how do we discipline??
Thanks in advance for your responses.
