Have Mental Health Questions? Ask a Psychiatrist Online
I'm not sure when he is lying. He tells me that he is doing all his homework and school work. Then I get an email from his teacher that he has a D in a class. I ask him about it, he says he has talked to the teacher and has it all worked out. I email her and find out that he has not talked to her. He goes to see the teacher the next morning and tells her he lied to me. That he has been having computer troubles and has seen the IT person. The teacher cks on this answer only to find out it is another lie. He has not spoken to the IT person at all. After the 1st lie, I put him on restriction not allowing him to go to the football game on Friday night. What do I do now that he is still lying....and he knows his teacher and I are communicating??
It is an ongoing problem but mostly about school work. We go through this every year and he is a senior now. I have spoken to several of his teachers and not one has even hinted that he is not capable of the of doing the work. He will even acknowledge that he can do the work just doesn't. He wants to go to Auburn University next fall but with the grades he has going I dont know that he will get in.
