hi confusedmom, my 12 yr old still comes out with the lies..i know now of his body langauge when he is lying and lying and lying!!! he is getting slowly better and using up alot of my energy! i giv him three chances to tell the truth, explaining he is still wrong for lying but will be a better person for telling the truthand if he contines to lie he will be grounded..sometimes it works and when it doesnt and he has blown his third chance he is grounded cos he hates being grounded. for a while my son was never out and he soon learned to tell the truth, not cos it was rite just so he did not get grounded. but he easlily slips back into the lying, so rienforcement is required, wendy

My 24 year old lied alot when he was a child. He did grow out of it but he did eventually grow out of it. It drove me nuts for many years and the only thing that ever worked, except the counseling, was a board that I used where he received stars when he made it through a certain amount of time without lying. I knew when he was lying so he eventually learned that he was going to be busted. But what would happen is that at the end of the week (when he was really young because a week is a really long time for a young child so you shouldn't go any longer) for the first month or so he would receive a prize for being able to tell the truth for at lease 50% of the week. Then over time you increase the %. Then at the end of the month he would get to go somewhere that he really wanted to go, ex: pizza, ice cream, etc. This is just an idea that worked for my son. But know that someday this to will pass and he will outgrow it. It did for my son.

When confronted with something he has said or done ,something in-apropiate.. My boyfriend refuses to acknowledge what he said or done by making up stories that DID NOT HAPPENED..side stepping to turn the situation unto me or others ..THAT HE DID THIS BECAUSE THEY DID THIS!! even though it does not relate to the issue at hand..This makes me very frustrated.. He never takes responsible for his actions..HE is an ADHD adult.. how do one fix this so that your babies do not become like him....good luck to all.
