I know a lady who told her grandaughter after her grandaughter hit her sister and then lied about it, that she would get one spank for hitting her sister, but 3 for lying. She came clean right away.
idk if I agree with her, but it's another idea.
I do know, as we all do, that whatever you decide to do about it, you have to be consistent and do it every time.
Just in the examples you gave you spanked, you put her in time out, you spanked....
Obviously idk what the right answer is, but supposedly if you are consistent for 2-3 weeks, the behavior will change. If it doesn't then whatever you are doing doesn't work for that particular dc...might for the next one??? So pick something else.
I do like the other ladies of thanking for and positively reinforcing telling the truth.
My mom always used to tell us "just tell me the truth, whatever it is, we can deal with it, just don't lie to me"
Good luck! Hope you are able to get through quickly.
