“Why is my child telling lies? Why do they feel the need to hide the truth from me? Am I not that great of a parent after all? What should I do?”
These are common questions that every adoptive parent goes through at one point or another. Despite the love, nurture, and care you give to your child day-by-day, your adoptee may still struggle with chronic lying. Although it may not seem like it, this can happen to any child coming from any circumstance. Don’t worry. The key to helping your child change is through understanding. What is it your child is trying to say that he or she cannot fully express? Be empathetic. As you and your child work together, any bad habit is possible to overcome.
