Re: I need ideas for the proper punishment for 11 y/o for lying
Ok. I know she lied but I don't think she needs to be severely punished for this instance. I think she needs to have some sort of consequence after every instance. The consequence needs to be doable for you. I don't know your daughter but having to be next to a crabby 11 year old girl every minute for a week sounds like way more torchure for the mom than the kiddo.
She didn't lie about cigarettes, or money she stole, or cheating on a test. I do think lying can be a slippery slope so should are smart to take action but keep it a little in perspective too
