2 Comments: The Truth About Your Child's Lying

  1. Good advice for when they are clearly caught lying.

    What is often hard to tell is if they truly are lying. They may not have even forgotten, but instead failed to process the information.

    If sweets are missing and they swear they didn’t take it but it’s clear they did that’s lying. I mean, they know they ATE the candy!

    But other stuff is harder, especially future events and deadlines.

    My main point is to only treat it as a lie if you are absolutely sure. Otherwise, the child/teen will only feel worse for being blamed for something they haven’t done.

  2. The dark side of not be able to treat ADHD and afford medication ( even generic versions ) can cause disastrous consequences in professional career growth.
