Children are expert in making up things. We appreciate them when they win a prize in story writing or telling competition. But have you ever wondered this could lead them to be a lair in future? Well, we can’t blame them often we also force them to lie. The best example of this is when you get a call from your irritating relative we ask kids to say, papa Ghar pr nhi hai. So to help you not raising a liar here are some tips:-
- Be a person they look up to be
For almost every child his/her parents are role model. So don’t lie in front of them. Next time while traveling in a bus, train, plane or any mode where you buy a ticket don’t lower their age just to save a few pounds.
- Don’t punish them
When you find out about something your child is lying about so instead of punishing him/her try talking. When you punish the child it develops the feeling of anger and insulted, this could have an adverse effect on the child.
- Appreciate his saying
It takes a lot of courage for children to own up to their lies. So when your child comes to you and confesses about something don’t bash him around but take a moment and appreciate him. This would build up a feeling of trust in him and he would not lie again.
- Solve the problem togetherHelp your child to come out of the problem. if you leave him or tell him to do it on his own be then be prepared for your worst nightmares.
Children are pure souls they don’t know what is right and what is wrong so they get along very easily. It’s really important for us to keep a check on them. But this doesn’t mean that you suffocate them with rules and regulations. Let your child know he can count on you in time of need…
