ABSTRACT
The article presents information on how children develop the habit of lying. As with everything else, children learn to lie from the people around them. Parents and teachers show children in subtle and not so ways to suppress their honesty. The big difference at this stage is that parents and teachers are no longer seduced by the sound of a child's voice, the innocent look on her face, or an outlandish alibi. A logical consequence is to have the child tell the teacher that he hasn't been giving the notes to his parents and that he is sorry. INSET: What to Do When Your Child Lies.
