How to Tell if Your Child is Lying
I’m sure this won’t come as a shock to anyone. Kids lie. From time-to-time adults lie too; never parents of course, just some other adults. Obviously if a parent accidentally lies to a kid it is only because we want the best for our children. We also just want them to go to sleep at bedtime. If we fib a little and tell them that there is no monster under their bed or that we can’t lie in bed with them any longer because we need to go to the bathroom / clean up the kitchen / do work / etc. it is only because we want five minutes alone with our partner to discuss which show we should binge watch next before we pass out on the floor.
