When a child lies, it can feel really frustrating. What should we do in the moment? Here's a peaceful parenting approach that explains a bit of what's going on in their brains when they're untruthful, and how we can create a better path forward. Note that this course is best suited for parents and caregivers of children 5 and younger. It's important to remember, however, that biological age isn't necessarily the same as emotional development in this area, and many of these tips also apply to older children.
