Stating that she was doing great when in fact she was not. Last night I surprised her with a movie download for her "good behavior". However, today she called from school crying to confess what she has been doing. I don't know what to do now. I'm a single mom, and tired of always being the bad guy. I'm proud that she came clean, but for the life of me I can't think of an appropriate punishment. I think the guilt of receiving a reward for something that she was lying about was eating her up. I am trying to focus on the positive behavior, but with consequences for her inappropriate actions. Help? Thanks in advance!
