My son just started stealing and lying... Stealing nothing of value really (candy, chocolate chips) and lies about it. The other day he tried to get my bf in trouble, saying that it was him that ate the candy... So far, its nothing too too serious, but I want to try and nip it in the bud before it gets worse. I've tried grounding him, taking his 'prized possessions' away... Sitting down and talking with him, rationalizing with him. Nothing seems to work.
