So the best way to go about it, is by simply talking to your child. Try to find out why your child is now lying to you. Try to make him feel that he/she can always come to you not just as a parent but as a friend as well. Allow your child to open up to you by LISTENING. If you do this, then there will be no more of the lying games that your child is playing with you.

2. Your child is mad at you, maybe because you grounded him/her. Now, because of this your teenager starts to do things behind your back. Thinking that no amount of reasoning with you will help him/her, so your child resorts to lying. Now, do not let this be your case. You have to explain to your child why he/she got grounded in the first place. And that it is not necessary to lie to you. You have to put down your walls, and try to be there for your teenager. You also have to remember that this phase in your child's life is all about rebellion. So do not push your child away. Talk to your child!
