How to deal with your kids lying

Message length 300 characters recommended

All kids go through a phase where they lie. Sometimes it's not giving the details quite right, sometimes it is making up a story out of the blue... and sometimes they want to get out of trouble.

When my kids have lied to me and I was pretty sure in the moment that I knew they were lying I would say something like "Hmm, that's an interesting story." or "I don't think that's how it happened, want to try again?"

If you give them a chance to tell the truth once they are called out sometimes they will. It's worth a try.
