How do I get my 8 year old to stop lying
Okay, my 8 year old is turning into a non-stop fibber. She is lying more than telling the truth. Did you feed the fish? Lie. They are clearly lies of convenience and wrong none the less. How do I get her to see the error of her ways? How do I scare her straight and see the consequences of her actions without trauma? Boy who cried wolf didnt work do we need a refresher??
Trying to scare her straight seems to have a link with trauma. Books like Tell the Truth Tyler could be helpful to your child. See these links for reviews:

Let her know that everyone struggles with the temptation to lie. Help her understand that there are consequences when we lie and that part of them have to do with sort of feeling like there is a dark cloud hanging over us that will eventually turn into a seared conscience about the matter.
