Short Phrase to Use When You Know Your Child Is Lying

It is easy to react strongly when we catch children lying. Telling the truth is important. At the same time, wise parents recognize that experimentation with lying is a normal part of a child’s intellectual and emotional development. This awareness helps us respond in a way that will encourage truth telling.

When you know your child is lying, try this short phrase:

“What I know is…”

There are times when our kids tell us things we KNOW are not true. But when we jump to,"That's a lie!", they typically shut down or become defensive. Whether it's lying, magical thinking, or a complete misunderstanding, we can avoid an argument or an overreaction by calmly starting with what we know.
