Lying Children

It is a common thing for children to lie.

They lie for a variety of reasons–to avoid

getting into trouble, to keep their parents

or teachers happy  or to cover up purported

inadequacies or embarrassment. They might

lie because they cannot recognise the difference

between reality and fantasy. They do not know

that lying is wrong.When you hear the child

is lying, do not over react, just point out that

it is wrong and that it is important to tell the

truth. Children may lie because they hear their

parents or other adults lie. They may  also lie

to avoid punishment. It is a delicate and

complicated issue  but it is    important

for parents and teachers to firmly deal

with  lying children.
