Lying is not a topic frequently discussed. If you're a parent with a child who lies, it's not something you'll probably discuss at coffee break or with your doctor. If you find yourself with this tendency, again, it's unlikely you'll share it with anyone.


This month our topic is lying and some of its root causes. The video below will outline several underlying causes from a brain skill functioning perspective for lying. I encourage you to also read the blogs below which will go into more detail. Unless the root causes of this behaviour is addressed it's unlikely the symptom will change. Disciplining a child is not usually successful in this area. Find out why.
