My 7 year old daughter has been stretching the truth, embellishing, etc. when she shares things from school. I discovered one this weekend because she told me she was invited to a classmates birthday party and told him she couldn't attend because we were going camping. I emailed his Mom, who I went to hs with and told her to have a fun party, etc. She responded with "what party?"
There have been other occasions where I know she wasn't telling the truth and then some times where I'm just not sure what to believe.
My 7 year old is a good girl, smart, reads well, has good friends, and we do many family activities together--she gets plenty of attention. Why would she be lying and embellishing her stories? What do I do about it?
Thanks for your help!
