My DD1 started kindy a few weeks ago. She is liking it in general, but is coming home and lying her pants off about it! She has embarrassed me a couple of times. She s making up stories or greatly embellishing things that happened in the day to me. For example she tell me that one of her new little friends is moving to a different school and yesterday was her last day. When I said it was sad to see her go to the little girls mum at school pick up, she gave me the strangest look. She isn't going anywhere???? she also tells me that she is having trouble with so so e else bullying her, and the teacher has to put her in the 'thinking chair'. Again, when I mentioned it to the teacher, she had no idea what I was talking about, they don't even use a timeout method of discipline.
I have tried calling her out over it, but she gets defensive and angry. Any suggestions as to why this behaviour has started? And how to discourage it?
