My nine year old daughter will not stop lying to us. She has had things removed, can't watch tv, play video games, have spanked her, grounded her nothing seems to work. One of our problems is she has chores here at home and things she is required to do, then when she goes to her birth moms house there are no rules,no chores they can really do what ever they like. If she is grounded her mom takes her off from being grounded and lets her do what ever she wants. She is learning that lying is ok from her mom. My daughter has even said her mother lies all the time. We are at a loss here. Please help.

So your step daughter has two sets of rules at two homes. That is part of the problem. Her father and mother have to get together and with you set the rules that apply at both homes and keep in constant communication about her being grounded or her consequnces. In the perfect world this would work. But he needs to try.
