She has went as far as telling her teacher that she didn't get her homework done because we had to pick up my husband at 4am. Apparently our car broke down. She also say people are pushing her down or bulling her. Nobody at the school has seen it. She will lie about everything. She says things like her friends live in the same complex as us or live where we used to live. That is impossible because we are not zoned for their school. She only goes there because her brother has a disability.

What do I do?

Hi again Brenda,

Well, I think your daughter has some psychological issues that need addressing, and as I mentioned a Psychological assessment sounds in order.

I thinks you are wise to be concerned, and getting to the root of her behaviors now is a good plan.

Here is an informative link regarding lying:

Take care, and I hope some of this helps!
