What do you do when children tell lies? Discuss without becoming red in the face!

No sooner do I get over one hurdle with one of my children than I hit another one, telling tales. Actually, I hate that phrase. Call a spade a spade - it's lying. As one of my colleagues described: it presses the buttons for many parents.

My daughter is digging her heels in and telling lies - there's been one a day for the past week.
Time to go back to the Triple P course and apply it to my family before I lead the parenting group next week!
(it does work - it only doesn't if one is inconsistent)

Is that a behaviour chart I see before my eyes???


  1. is the behaviour chart for you or your child?

  2. you speak with a prophetic edge!!

    Oh please no....not a behaviour chart......they really don't work.


In the words of Mrs Doyle in Father Ted, go on, go on, go on........

Leave me a wee message! Only rules - is it true, is it kind, is it necessary?
