15 year old lying issues

Questioner: Liz Subject: 15 years old daughter

Question: Hi Kay My daughter constantly lying and won't own up until you produce evidence even then she tries to denies. I canont trust her, I am continuesly checking on her. It is making our relationship hell. Her lie is affecting everyone around her and even her relationship with her friends.
I an worried and don't know what to do.

Please help.
regards Liz Answer:

Dear Liz, Get counseling immediately. You need to take her in for family counseling and get to the bottom of her need to lie. Sometimes children and teens lie out of fear. This is why how we parent or care for children is so critical to the outcomes years later. However, at the age of 15 I strongly encourage family counseling now.

Best Wishes!
