I've had a major problem with my 8 year old daughter lying to get out of trouble. Problem is, she keeps lying about things she wouldn't have gotten in trouble for, then ends up getting in trouble for lying. I did the grounding thing, which didn't really help. She got a dose of Tabasco sauce on her tongue which helped for about 2 weeks, but she kicked it up again last week. TQC, do you have any suggestions? How do I get it to sink in that she will always get in more trouble for lying?|
Edit: For everyone mentioning the Tabasco on her tongue, it's the same idea as washing a kid's mouth out with soap, which isn't a pleasant experience either.
OH! And I forgot to mention, she actually likes Hot sauce mixed in to her food, so it's not as much a punishment as it probably seems.
