Honesty is usually the best policy, but not always and is sometimes used as a weapon. More parenting advice about lying.
Teaching children to be honest and kind is tricky. The best way is to work toward that goal yourself. For more tips, see yesterdays’ blog or get my When Good Kids Lie. Buy it now or wait to get it free this week end.
Help me share my knowledge. Like, comment, share, endorse, write a review if you buy or get one of my eBooks free. Reviews are particularly helpful. Here is a link too a post I wrote about how to write reviews. But even a comment would help as I can use it as an endorsement.
As I tell myself a thousand times a day, stay strong, give lots of love, be grateful, practice kindness, live now, give and seek forgiveness, and always hope the blessing of the forces beyond our control are with you and those you love.
DISCLAIMER ONE: ADVICE IS ADVICE and only works for some parents some of the time. Moreover, what works for one child in a family might not work for another child in the same family. You must experiment to find what works for you and yours. Good luck.
DISCLAIMER TWO: FORGIVE MY GRAMMATICAL ERRORS FOR I HAVE DYSGRAPHIA. If you need perfect posts, you will not find them here. Dysgraphia is a not well known learning disability and means that sometimes my sentence structure is not that easy to follow or I make other errors. Still, most people understand me. All of my books are professionally edited, but not all of my blog posts are. If this troubles you, feel free to read elsewhere. If you persevere, you are practicing kindness by lifting my spirits for that means you find what I say helpful and that is one of my missions. Kindness always repays those who spread it.
