When Your Child Lies

from All Pro Dad

Your child has just told a lie. Now what do you do? Author Dr. Scott Turansky says that breaking your child of the lying habit can be a challenge, but it is possible. He offers 10 guidelines for dealing with lying, including what to do if you think your child is lying, but you can’t prove it. The first three are:
 
1. Talk about reality and truth and how they are different from fantasy, wishes, possibility, pretend, and make believe.
 
2. When you sense a child is beginning to stray from the truth, stop them.
 
3. Give your children the benefit of the doubt.
 
For more details on the above three guidelines and to read about all ten, check out this article.
