Why does my seven yr old daughter come home after school and lie to me about certain girls being mean to her? I find out she's lying because I ask her if I should call the school to discuss this and only then does she fess up. What would she gain by this?

She doesn't lie about these girls frequently only once in awhile. My son who is 18 now and in college used to do the same thing. I remember him coming home and saying "nobody like me" and when I volunteered at the school he seemed to have been very well liked, his teacher would tell me the same thing. I wonder if it's because I'm doing something wrong. My other two kids have always been completely honest. I realized that she gets the extra attention when we discuss her lying but I can't just let it go can I?
