screeched B this evening.
He had just pushed his sister out of the way as she had pushed past him. I commented so you pushed her because she pushed you. He said no he hadn't pushed her. I said well why do you think she is crying then? To which he screeched the above.
We have had various issues with B not telling the truth but I have tried to deal with it really gently but obviously he doesn't think so

"I would believe you if you were telling the truth" is the answer to that. (I've had similar discussions with mine as you can tell). I just make it clear that I know she's lying and ask her not to.
Its hard because it can be so obvious to you that they're lying but they don't understand it.
He will get over it - try not to take it to heart. My daughter frequently behaves like a teenager - heaven help us when she is a real teenager!

He accused me of lying tonight over something and got very angry about it -can't even remember what it was and tbh I felt quite indigant myself because I had told the truth. Could I have you on hand in one of those ear phone thingys to give me advice as it happens a la 'Bedtime Live'?

I probably am better giving advice here than I am in reality! Its easier when its not your kids - much harder when its you who is being shouted at. I had a ridiculous disagreement the other day with my daughter the other day over whether one of her friend's birthday is on the same day as hers. Which its not but she was insisting it was. In the end I had to tell her to stop arguing with me!
