I have a 17 year old son that seems to feel it is necessary to lie constantly. It is to the point where I never know if he is telling me the truth or not. He lies about the smallest things even when it is not necessary. I have tried to explain that if he just tells me the truth, the chances of him getting in trouble are less than when I find out he is lying. And if I take the car away from him, life is good and he turns back into the "perfect" child! Not sure what I can do to make him realize that lying is not the way to go! HELP!
