Struggling with going from 1 to 4. Is it normal to have groundhog day with arguing/fighting/ lying in large families? I give consequences, but nothing sinks in, feeling very stressed sad

Maybe if you try not to ask for anyone's opinions, they can't lie to you then and it might prove a point that your not interested in any tales or make believe stories? Obviously that would be an age appropriate thing to go by though and knowing when is not a good time for that lol. One thing that eased the lies in my house was letting each person have their say with no other able to listen in, just a one on one little chat for each helped me to read into it a lot easier and figure out what happened overall- for real!! I've got the same problem with no consequences sinking in or having a positive effect too! It's really frustrating and your most definitely not alone so don't blame yourself xxx
