Our expert says:
OK, Rushing to you to deny something you don't even yet know she's done, she's not a skilled liar ! KIds don't need to be taught to lie, it comes naturally to all of us. And around this age, kids may start to try it out as a viable tactic. If it seems to work, that is, it helps them get away with misbehaving, they'll increase its use. But if you take the time to talk with her about it, show that if she has accidents or minor misbehaviours and ADMITS these rather than lying about it, you will understand and she won't be in trouble. But that if you find her lying, she will have to sit aside in a naughty place for 4 minutes, not for what she did ( unless it was awful, too ) but for lying about it. When she discovers that lying is more trouble than it's worth, and that admitting one's errors and putting them right is useful as well as good, she'll be discouraged from developing lying as a habit
