The Real Reasons Kids with ADHD Lie—and Ways to Help Them Stop
Anticipate tricky situations
If you know your child struggles with sequencing tasks like setting the table, give him a list of steps to follow. Look for patterns in when he lies to figure out where there may be trouble spots.
Brush it off
Yes, it’s hard, but don’t take her lying personally. Try to remember that she’s not trying to defy or disrespect you. Focus on what led to the lie rather than the lie itself.
