How Do You Deal With A Compulsive Lying Teenager?

Dealing with lying is frustrating and confusing for many parents. Unfortunately, teens and pre-teens often lie or tell only part of the truth.

Sue Atkins In Conversation With … Sarah Wild – Limpsfield Grange Girls School

How Autism is Different With Girls

Sarah Wild is Head teacher of Limpsfield Grange a secondary school in Surrey for autistic girls that was part of ITV documentary back in 2015.

Limpsfield Grange in Surrey is the only state run boarding school in Britain specialising in girls with autism. The girls are all aged from 11-16 and more than half of them are on the autistic spectrum. The documentary focused on three very different pupils, Katie, Abigail and Beth, & the one-off documentary followed them over the course of six months both at school and at home, to offer a unique insight into what it means to be autistic and a teenage girl.

With increasing numbers of girls being diagnosed every year, the true extent to which girls suffer from the condition is perhaps only now being recognised. With extreme variations in how every girl presents their condition, the school does it’s best to prepare each girl for an unforgiving outside world using a range of innovative methods, sometimes with tough love and always extraordinary patience.

In this episode we look at why some teenagers lie & what to do if your child isn’t very sporty.










Don’t Stew – Ask Sue Parenting Q & A

Q. Dear Sue, my son Joe wants to get into the football team at school but he lacks the confidence to go to the After School Club so of course he’ll never get noticed by the Coach. What can we do to help him feel more confident? He’s a good little player – & we just want to encourage him.” Pete Walsh from Wolverhampton.
Q. Dear Sue whatever happened to the truth – where did my innocent little girl go?” My daughter Mattie has turned 14 and she has changed so much so quickly. She seems more prone to lie by leaving out the complete truth or by deliberately bending the truth or blatantly lying to us about small stuff, as well as the big stuff, like why she was late home AGAIN on Wednesday evening. I am at my wits end as we seem to have ‘’lost’ her lovely smiling face and honesty. Can you help? Sue Davis from Port Talbot, Wales.
