She lies about everything and anything. And I'm not talking little white lies....she made up a huge story about a kid bring a gun to school to shoot people and it turned out while the kid did bring a pellet gun to school it was broken and he never intended on shooting anyone and she just saw it by chance....she's been lying about people making fun of her, actually she lies about everything she can possibly lie about and I don't know how we can get trust instilled back with her. Her bio dad was a habitual liar to the point where he believed his lies to be truth. We have been divorced since 2001 and he has no contact with her. Don't know what to do...we've tried getting her into creative writing, giving her attention but it's never enough she has to have undivided attention 100% of the time and she does have another sibling so I cannot just focus on her. Neither my husband nor myself knows what to do anymore...we are at our wits end.
To add to that, she also lies about getting in minor trouble at school, comes home and tells us she was a perfect angel, we have since found out otherwise.
We have a parent teacher conference tomorrow where we are going to find out exactly what her conduct has been. She has a child study nearer to Thanksgiving.....to see if there are any special needs we need to address...
She was diagnosed with Asperger's at the age of 4 years old.....Any advice would be great.
The usual advice I get is that she is trying to get attention but she eats lunch with the principal once a week, we give her as much attention we can between her and her brother.....we do special things for her.....
I just...don't know what to do anymore....like I said her lies have been so extensive that she's compromised our trust in her.
