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???
