Hi ... I m mom of 9+ years old obdient, responsible, only daughter. our company and togetherness is very friendly and quit satisfied. But in these days she is lying. When asking about the reason of lie, she very strongly says she is not lying. While she knows very well I will make her understand to do not lie in stead of scolding. Though, she is lying continuously and accepts while caught badly. why she is lying? what is the reason? How to deal with it? while me and my husband just hate lying.

Children lie for several reasons: They feel parental pressure They want to escape from the situation They do not like to be grilled They have peer pressure They do not like to hit their parents! They are nervous about facing the truth. Sometime at her age she feels she is not lying. She is merely evading the truth or postponing the truth. So do not take it personally. Do not focus on the lie. Focus on her. Are you making her nervous? Understand the trigger and sort it out. Cultivate openess and acceptance. Your child should feel free to tell you anything. And you do not react. Rather you respond. Make her aware that you know what is happening- in a manner that is not intimidating. Keep reassuring your support. She will open up and be herself.
