My 14 year old twins lie constantly! They see counselors once a week, and im trying to be "family oriented" but when i let them out to see friends all hell breaks loose. How to I trust them enough to go out and not do drugs? How do i punish two teenagers?

The more you give them the more they think they can play you and get away with them have chats with your daughter whilst your taking her to a massage place so whilst she is alo enjoying herself she can wind down x

Well, for one, quit giving them everything under the sun. When they lie, impose consistent consequences.

Throwing more material items at them doesn't fix anything

oh I do that too, I was giving in all the time because the psychologist told me to basically give in because of depression. I don't do it anymore. But I have tried everything.

They no longer have social media..Ive been trying more on the sports aspect but it's just not working. Family counselling isnt helping or personal counselling. Just not sure what to do.

It's been going on for 3 years since my husband and I seperated. They try and play both of us.

The more i do for them and buy them the more they lie..there is a serious problem with my son, and therapy isnt working. He cuts, does drugs, steals. He has been in and out of detention centers. My daughter just got out of hospital for cutting, suicide, shes on 3 types of meds and seeks 3 counselors 3 times a week.. she was in the hospital for 3 months.

Ive tried putting them in basketball, cadets, hockey, baseball, guitar lessons, dance lessons, camps, baseball, and even bought a new puppy..they quit everything! We go for 45 mins walks every night..it does nothing!

So again my question is what the hell do i do with my 14 year old twins who wont listen?
They are out of control and ive tried everything!

The more u impose discipline more they'll lie so just take both into confidence as it may be fact they must be seeking your attention so they must be lying
