MFP 010: Lying

“Lying lips are an abomination to the LORD, but those who deal faithfully are His delight.”

Proverbs 12:22

One of the trickiest parenting situations to deal with is when a child tells a lie. Do you punish them? If you do that, won’t they keep lying to avoid punishment in the future? How do you know they are lying? What if you think they are lying, and they are actually telling the truth? In this podcast, we will share with you what we did in our family when we had kids in our household who had a habit of lying. What we’ve learned is there is not a “one size fits all” approach to this issue, but we can give you some ideas and suggestions as we share our experiences with you.
