Often times when parents discover their children are lying to them, they are usually filled with keen dismay, sometimes incredulity, puzzlement or anger, and underneath it all, sadness too. We know intuitively that truth-telling is key to building and nurturing a trusting relationship. However, children who have experienced trauma may struggle with telling the truth.
Being a caregiver for a child who lies can be very challenging and stressful. As a caregiver, you may ask yourself why the child is lying to you and how to deal with, prevent, heal and course correct.
Come to learn what is behind a foster child’s lie, discuss the different types of lies, understand the signs of lying and develop the tools to help your child feel safe and confident enough, to tell the truth.
