LYING HURTS YOUR CHILD'S REPUTATION AND BREEDS DISTRUST.  If you're the parent of an elementary-age student, who has trouble telling the truth, can you remember a time when you told a falsehood? If it had bad consequences, can you remember your feelings? Were you plagued with guilt? Were you afraid to confess for fear of punishment? 

Lies can cause your child mental pain too. Today's article shares 7 fearful consequences from lying, 7 positive effects for being truthful, 6 honest strategies, 5 moral dilemmas for your child to solve, and 10 self-talk statements from which to choose. 

 HONESTY BEGINS AT HOME!

Children look up to parents with eager eyes and ears. They see and hear everything.  When parent's aren't truthful, kids learn about lying. When parents are truthful, kids trust and respect them. Use the tips in this article to model truthfulness and help your child.

3 Suggestions to Tell Your Child When He Is Ready to Admit His Mistakes:

1. "Avoid over-thinking about the action you are about to take. It might stop you from telling the truth." 
2. "Take 5 deep breaths right before admitting your lie. It will help you relax."
3. "Repeat a simple slogan like, “My truth is like gold when my honesty's bold,” because it could give you the courage you need."

Brainwashing Kids: How Divorced Parents Show Caring

Angry boy SMALL
"Stop talking against my parent!"


DIRTY DIVORCE TACTICS INCLUDE TELLING YOUR CHILD MEAN THINGS ABOUT HIS OTHER PARENT. It's called "parental alienation." When you're deeply hurt by the divorce
, it's easy to do.

Let's face it, divorce wounds both parents and kids. Many parents want revenge. So they try to turn their children against the other parent. To get their children to love them best, they brainwash their kids to think poorly of the other parent with words like:

"Your father is a liar."

"Your mother doesn't care about you."

"Your dad is lazy."

"Your mom is selfish."

Whatever is said has the power to influence their children. It goes inside their hearts and minds and makes them feel confused, angry, and sad. They may even begin to agree with the complaining parent. Their respect for the complainer turns sour too.

Today we'll share an article with a child's divorce story about feelings and another story about a father's unrealistic demands. You'll find 7 common childhood reactions to a parent's divorce, 10 big mistakes divorced parents make, and 15 ways to avoid brainwashing and show your child love.
