daughter lies to friends about home life

My 14-year-old daughter lies to her friends about her home life. She tells them on facebook and texts that she smokes weed, her step dad beats her, I am constantly yelling at her and hate her because she looks like my ex. All these things are not true. I don't understand why she would want her friends to think bad things about her and her parents. If anything, it's her biological father that treats her like she's nothing. My husband and I have done nothing but love her and tell her how much we love her all the time. It hurts and is hard to not take it personally when she paints this ugly picture of us to her friends. Recently I found out that she had posted to a couple of her friends that she was raped several years ago. I don't even know how to approach her about this. Because she has lied about everything else, this rape must be a lie, too, but I'd like to talk to her to find out without her knowing that I know what she posted.

You really need to take your child to a therapist. She could just be acting out and looking for attention, or there may be some underlying reason. Maybe part of it is true and she doesn't know how to bring it up, especially if you think everything she says is a lie.

Good luck!
