Our expert says:
Everybody lies, especially when they think they might get away with it and when it might hlp them keep out of trouble. You cant prevent her from seeing any boy at school, and trying too hard to do so may make her more likeyl to do so anyway, and to lie about it.
The best safeguard of all is to develop a comfortably trusting relationship with your dauhter, so she can feel safe to talk with you about ANYTHING that might worry her. Then she could have felt safe t talk to you about the boy she fancied who was geting into trouble. Rather than making a catastrophe out of this, chat about how hard it is to make choices and decisions at times, about nwhat it is she likes about this boy ; about whether she recognizes the risks of drugs, and the troubles he might be getting himself into, and so on,
