with my son nothing got through to him as far as punishment for anything. We could ground him, take everything away, make him miss out on going with friends and events etc nothing worked. But around 4th grade we tried sentences. We would make him write a sentence x amount of times. That seemed to be the only thing that he hated. Over time it became less effective though.

My advice is to call him out on everything. If he says he did his homework make him show you. If he says he left it at school shoot the teacher an email that afternoon and ask if he turned it in. Explain to him that he has broken your trust and until he earns it back he needs to prove to you that he is telling the truth.

How old is your son? What grade is he in?

Thank you Jaidynsmum for my awesome siggy
