Lying is not a moral issue, it’s simply a way to solve a problem. Let’s teach our children another way while exploring why they lied!
Children need to see conflict occur and have a resolution so that they will know how to deal with conflict when it arises. Where your child is getting in the most trouble, will identify their biggest need(s).
Teach your child to use their voice so that when they are in a situation where you’d want them to “just say no”, they know how to use it.
Imagine your child walking into class with some knowledge and understanding of the lesson, instead of feeling totally overwhelmed. Their confidence would soar.
Getting even more curious with your child! A scenario of a brother and sister for you!
“Why don’t the children in my class just bring their homework to school done?” From: A Frustrated Teacher
“Help! I’d like to be able to do my homework without my parents nagging me.” From: A Frustrated Child
“Help! I’d like my child to do their homework without a fight.” From: A Frustrated Parent
Help! My child is “acting up”! Without a psychology degree, you, yes you, can raise a successful child as life is actually pretty simple!
What we feed grows! Think of a flower when it doesn’t bloom, we don’t put the blame on the flower; we look at the environment the flower is in and see if it’s getting what it needs to grow. Let’s do the same for our children.
