My 8 yr old step-daughter keeps lying to me non stop, she told me that she was touched by her father's friends when she was staying there and that they exposed themselves to her. But then she takes it back and changes her story. We're doing the best to explain to her that it's not her fault and we've even brought DCS into it and they have been ordered to stay away from our daughter. The last time she seen those people she screamed, cried and stayed away from them when we seen them around town.
Then she's also lying about stealing food, after we just ate a huge meal for supper. She ruins people's stuff that isn't hers and she doesn't even feel bad about it. She took my youngest son who's 2 down from a chair and threw him on the floor and hurt his head numerous times. We are at a loss for what to do. We love her and show her it non stop but it hurts when we try to help her and she throws us to the wolves so to speak. She even hugs on her teachers non stop at school, but when she gets home from the bus stop she just says hi; no hug nothing. Almost like we're not good enough to hug but the people at school are. We've put her in the corner for all her acting up. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you again.
