Have you told your boyfriend this? Do the other kids witness her behavior or does she only do it when she's alone with you? The camera idea doesn't sound that bad if you can't get anyone else to witness her behavior towards you and sadly, people will tend to naturally believe a child when they cry abuse these days. You most definitely cannot let her get away with this though - she needs to get caught by other people in her lies and I agree with a previous poster, she should probably have some sort of psychiatric evaluation done and receive treatment.

that is one troubled young girl. maybe you should have her see a doctor.. or try to bond with her alone.. or maybe try that suggestion, put cameras inside the house so people will know you are not hurting her.

Why don't you install cameras in your house without her knowledge? put those cameras in locations where no one can see it. That way, you can record her actions and you can show that to your husband. If you can't handle her, it's best that you let her father discipline her. That girl is lucky she's in the US otherwise, she could have all the spanking in her life if she's here in the philippines.
