When our Children Lie - What Should We Do?

A few weeks ago I spent the morning at Studio 5. It is a local daytime television show, and it is always fun to contribute. Brooke, Darren and I spent a few minutes talking about kids and lying. Why they lie, and what to do.

Do your kids ever lie? Watch the video for some great pointers on how to deal with it.
If you want more in-depth information, read this post on Kids and Lying.

Remember it is really normal for kids to try lying. The key is to put a stop to it so it doesn't become a habit. (Keep in mind, it might be our fault, not theirs. Wink wink.)

Do you ever fib around your kids?
What's the craziest lie you have heard from your children?


  1. You give great reminders to lavish praise after telling the truth as well as thanking them for the truth.

  2. Hi Heather! I've been following you for a while but never comment. I watched the video and LOVED your tips! My oldest is only 4.5, so I'm still learning A LOT...something your blog helps me do! Thank you so much for your gentle but wise advice!

  3. Fabulous post. And I LOVE the new look of the site.

  4. that was so good! I have a fibber in my house and I don't always react the correct way. This was a great reminder for me!

  5. No fibbing.Kids are smarter than you think. They will catch you. I got caught once and that was it!! No more. Telling the truth is very important in our house. It determines your character for life. You must be a trustworthy person of you will have problems with family, job, relationships, etc. It's a must.

  6. What about other children constantly lying to your children? Not sure how to handle this one.Any suggestions would be appreciated.

  7. My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for ,my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. Website: whatsapp number +2347012841542
