Dishonest child: how to deal?

Message length 300 characters recommended

Toddlers have a hard time distinguishing what's truth and what's not. They have very vivid imaginations and may honestly think their fantasy is reality.

If you feel sure your toddler is lying about something, try not to be accusatory. Ask them if they can help you understand what happened. Watch your body language so they're not fearful of you. If your family believes in God, remind them that God wants us to be honest with each other.

I wouldn't worry so much about punishment at this age. Most toddlers don't willfully lie to be deceitful.
