Most of us have dealt with a child who tells more or less than the truth. And I see too many times when they are over corrected. Sometimes with severe punishment. For myself this is not the cure. When we encounter these behaviors its important to find the source. Since fibbing is like a virus, they spread very fast and that's how we get to rumors. How do our children figure this stuff out? Well its very simple. Most of us already know the answer. It's "You, Us, We " We are teaching our children this stuff. And then "WE" are punishing them for displaying what we have taught them. How ridiculous can we as parents get.
If more of us act out our daily lives with honor and integrity then we wouldn't be obliged to display a false reality and our children wouldn't feel the need to master this behavior in hopes to impress us. Since that's what children are doing. They long for the approval of their parents. So show them how to behave so that they will be proud of you and in return you will be proud of your self and your children for living an honorable life.
If by chance there are some parents out there that still don't understand what type of things i'm referring to and you are having this type of behavior with your child/children. Then just observe their behavior listen to their words find out what type of activities they are evolved in. They typically mirror the parents daily life. And there you will find the cause and will be able to correct it starting with the parent first.
