12 year olds lying

I have a 12 year old son with ADHD who is lying about everything. I am dealing with him gently so he will consider the consequences. What do I do?

IF you find an answer let us all know. The truth is there is no one answer that works for everyone. Depends on the child, depends on parenting style used. I have three teens and sometimes something that works on one will have no affect on the others. Just try out different ways of dealing with it and see what works. Right now with my 13 year old, who always lies, we are trying out pointing out that we know and leaving it there. No lecture, nothing. Does it accomplish anything? sometimes... not always.
