Time out in their room on their bed until they're ready too fess up. A time or two they have told a big lie and has gotten their brother in trouble. This is very serious as we are trying to instill a strong brotherly love. Usually I make them right a letter to the person they got into trouble and choose something to do for them. If it affected no one else directly the they have to right their wrong. And we move on. They hate time out. It's boring.

If its something little I just talk to my 5yr old and then either take something away or he had to go to bed early. If its a big lie he gets the little lie consequences plus a little spoonful of hot sauce!

Re: What do you do when your kid lies?

We have a little talk. Big difference between lying to avoid negative consequences versus being funny. We try to make the experience more positive when she's honest about a situation rather than reprimand her for lying. At least for us that's worked well so far.
