Parents who are faced with a teen who is showing patterns of deceptive behavior may have more to worry about than they think. For most parents, one of the greatest fears is finding out that their teen is involved in drugs or other illegal activity and more importantly how it may affect their future. As a parent, the first instinct is to try to look for "the obvious signs" that something is potentially wrong. They know their child's routine and they think they know who their friends are. Then the teen becomes extremely secretive and begins lying about such things as, where they have been or who they were with. They may have costly items in their possession they claim they borrowed from "a friend" and become irritated when pressed further. What these signs may actually be showing is a destructive pattern. When this occurs it is very difficult for parents to truly identify what their teen may be involved in or to what degree.
