All children lie. Even we did growing up. They were usually called, "white lies." If your kids are in their teens and constantly lying this is a more serious problem. People who lie lack self confidence, feel they must appear more important, etc., to their peers. They have extremely low self esteem. You would have to make a good attempt at having a one-on-one talk with your teen to find out why they have to lie about things. Parents have to teach their children CONSEQUENCES of lying. For example: If someone broke a vase in the house, and you knew it was your child or one of the children and they lied about it and you discovered they did, then it's a good idea to #1 Get them to do chores around the house to make up for buying a new one #2 Giving up any allowance they may have to pay for that item (within reason) or #3 Don't let them do something they enjoy doing as a punishment. They will get angry and complain and probably drive you crazy, but hold fast and don't give in! There is always consequences for lying. Sit down with your child and tell them "the truth always comes out" and if you don't tell the truth people won't respect you and they could well lose friends over it. Especially young children don't like other children that lie. It's tough to gauge which is "growing pains" re lying or what is a habitual liar. If it continues even after you've tried the above then seek out counseling. Good luck Marcy

If you have some good evidence and you know that his lying to you, approach him and tell him what you have. Ask him why he needs to lie.

The approach that won't work for Judge Judy is lying, half truths, and not answering the question that she asked.

Expressing feeling has nothing to do with lying . If you are in relationship you should never lie to your partner . Lying never leads to anything positive (except for a surprise) .

Answer What makes you think that he's lying about such a delicate subject. If you have doubts tell him that you aren't willing to have children if you aren't married and see what he says to that.

Some children do, but you shouldn't. Lying is wrong, especially to your parents, or any family member.

When you approach an injured person, it helps to keep them as calm as possible. You approach a person who is lying down by their feet so they can see you coming a good amount of time before you reach them and they can have time to assess if you're there to help them or not. If you approach them by their head, they can feel more threatened and can be startled especially if you come from behind them.

Many children lie to their parents. So tell the truth.

Just leave and take the kids with you. Your lawyer will do the rest.

NO,not at all.You are being truthful.I am confusing about confusion and confusing and confusing.TIT FOR TAT.

The rule I use is the golden rule. I do not do what I do not want the kids to do to me. There is a difference between lying and omitting some details too though. One last thought - they always figure out what is wrong.

Generally, no. Lying is a social skill that some Autistic children lack, it is hard for them to understand the concept of lying, for it is an interesting thing to not tell the truth to some one you know. But however, it is always different for every person. If you have any further questions about Autistic children, then email me at ijm9098@gmail.com I love talking about it, and I have loads of experience with Special ed kids, and Autistic children.

Here are some sentences.Cheating is the same as lying.Lying is a sin.

Children often lie out of fear. If they did something they know they shouldn't have, they know that if they tell the parent they will be punished. Children consider lying a much more reasonable way to do things; they often do not consider the consequences.

Yes, lying is the correct spelling.Some example sentences are:Why are you lying to me?He is lying in bed.Lying to the police is not a good idea.The cat is lying in the sun.

Lying is NEVER the answer! Just be honest with him and ask again but if he lies again just respectfully ask if he is telling the whole truth. He will probably tell the truth this time but if he doesn't then maybe approach an adult you can trust like your Mum or someone else like that. NEVER LYING

No. As all parents and some spouses know, drunks and children are perfectly capable of lying. Eg. "It was like that when I found it!" Eg. "I only had a few!"
