my 11 year old daughter constantly lies and won't take responsibilities for her mistakes.. have been trying to discipline her and just can't seem to come across to her the right way.. What can I do? Please help.

I don't feel that I can offer any good advice. I'm kinda feeling like a failure as a mom at the moment. However . . . I can say that you are not alone. The worst age for my stepdaughter was around 11. It's a very difficult time. Instead of looking at discipline, can you look at the source of the lie? In other words, is she lying about a particular thing? Is she having any other problems that perhaps she is trying to hide with her lies?
