So my 10 year old step daughter lied to me yesterday and let me believe that my 4 year old daughter was lying to me. She said it was because she likes seeing my 3 kids get in trouble and get spanked. She says it makes her happy to see this. But it's not just this. She lies all the time, she is always starting trouble, she makes serious false accusations about people, for example, she told her school that I was putting bruises on her and she told me 2 days ago that her mom drags her sister by the hair. I am not sure how to handle this. I think she needs serious psychological help but it's not my place as her step mom to say anything...or is it? I really thought it was just a behavior problem...maybe even jealousy...but now that she has openly admitted that she gets pleasure from seeing her step and half sisters get spanked, I am not so sure. Is it possible for a child to have sadist tendencies?
