So my 13 year old daughter has a constant problem of lying. Most of the time it's over the stupidest things. But it is now getting so frustrating that everything that comes out of her mouth is a lie. For her to be able to get her way. What do you do when your at your last straw?

She does have consequences for her actions as for instance her cell phone, tablet video games her TV going outside to play with friends at any time them things can be taken away. I also was raised military so I believe in line I make her sit and write 100 time I will not lie. She's been place on punishment and no matter what she continues to lie. Counseling really doesn't have an effect on her at all. She's a spoiled kid she's the only child in the home so she's been spoiled very much so, but I've never been the parent to accept bad behavior or lying so I'm kind of confused on where this lying is coming from. Especially because my daughter knows the two things I do not like in this whole world is someone that will lie or steal. There two things I just will not accept because that just two things I'm not is a liar or a thief so I will not associate myself with that. My daughter knows that so I don't get where this lying is coming from

Everyone lies. However, most kids will lie to get out of trouble, avoid responsibility or to make them self seem more important or unique. So if you teen is lying to get out of doing things or to get her way, that is typical. Acceptable? Absolutely not. When you catch her in a lie, the consequences must be significant and consistent. What have you tired thus far?
Lying without any reason is another matter, for example; you ask her what she had for lunch, she had a turkey sandwich but she says she had a ham sandwich. This sort of meaningless lying need to get addressed by a professional. It can become a pattern and habitual.

She needs you to have rules and consequences, be consistent, and she might benefit from counseling.
