Help! 14yo son consistently lies about clothes

Linda - posted on 05/01/2015 ( no moms have responded yet )




I desperately need some advice. For the past 2 yrs now, we have noticed a consistent pattern with my son lying about everything. His grades r good but he has almost been too comfortable with the idea of lying. Even though he has been punished, talked too and even given chance after chance, he consistently lies and what makes it worse to us is he has been caught lying about clothes. He asks other boys at school for name brand shoes, clothes and when he was caught, we talked to him, asked him why does he do it ad he says, he does not know. He already has really nice things but what's even more concerning is he continued to beg his friends at school for clothes. I know that girls does things like this but I never heard of boys doing it. My son is brought up in a very good home where he is loved and also made to understand value is not in things but I'm at a lost and it's tearing our family apart. Me and my husband have no clue on what to do. Has this happened to anyone else before? Does this seen like something serious? I'm so concerned and it's scares me as his mom that my son is willing to lose himself, his integrity over clothes. Please help?
