The Two Sentences That Will Get Your Kids to Tell the Truth
The Two Sentences That Will Get Your Kids to Tell the Truth

According to a new book called NurtureShock, you only need TWO sentences to get your kid to always tell you the truth.

When you think your kids might be lying about doing something, tell them:  “I won’t be upset with you if you did it.  And if you tell the truth, I’ll be really happy.”

Those sentences significantly cut down on lying because, quote, “Young kids are lying to make you happy, to try to please you.”

Another sentence that supposedly cuts down on lying by about 25% is, “I’m about to ask you a question.  But before I do that, will you promise to tell the truth?”

Try it! Let us know if it works.
