I see so many stories similar to my own on the lying and stealing. But I don't see any real answers on what to do - where to go. What have others of you done to achieve success in dealing with these issues? Where do we start? With a psychologist - but hard to find one that is truly effective. So it is up to us. The 'stealing candy and cookies' (even when Hidden) is out of control - and then Lies about it when there is no one else here to have Taken it all. The blatant disrespect and defiant behavior - someone told me is 'typical' of teenager. Being told that DOESN'T HELP.
