Why Kids Lie…and How to Encourage Truthfulness

07/06/2019 | 8:30 am - 4:30 pm

San Diego County Foster Parent Assoc.

Type of Class

Instructor: Jody Johnston Pawel, LSW, CFLE

This stimulating workshop provides several thought-provoking discussions that provide insights and reveal surprising facts about: What really qualifies as a lie? When do children understand they are lying? Why do children lie? How can parents prevent lying? How parents might accidentally model lying without even realizing it, and “Truth or Consequences,” practical tools for responding to lies in ways that encourage permanent truthfulness.
In this all-day workshop, you will also learn how to identify the reason a child is lying, how to respond helpfully instead of reacting. You’ll also want to know how to discipline lies respectfully, so children learn the value of truthfulness and don’t lie more just to avoid punishment (which is the number one reason children lie).
