What should I do when confronted with dishonesty in children?

Parenting Tips

January 2024

Written by: Family Dynamics Psychological Counselor, Lai Shun Mei

Every time a child does homework, he or she falsely claims to have a stomachache, to go to the bathroom, or to go to sleep. Thousands of lies and excuses. Parents who value character development are naturally outraged because they have zero tolerance for dishonesty in their children. But why do children always avoid doing their homework? Why do they have to lie to cover it up?

Often, children avoid doing homework not because they don’t want to, but because they can’t. Children want to be good and smart, but when they find out they can’t do their homework, they think they are not smart enough. They can’t accept this and will lie to cover it up and avoid it. Generally speaking, children with normal intelligence but learning disabilities will have their academic performance affected to some degree, but they can excel in other areas as well. And regardless of their intelligence level, as long as they use the right approach, coupled with the right amount of training, they can also build the corresponding ability.

But why do people lie? When a person feels that he or she is in an uncomfortable situation, he or she will activate the defense mechanism to protect himself or herself. Lying is one of the ways to cope with a crisis by avoiding it. If parents want to help their children, they should allow them to tell the truth so that they can understand what their children really don’t understand.

How do you instill in children the courage to speak the truth? You have to let your child know that even if he is not smart enough, you will still love him so much, take him as your joy, be patient with him, and find ways to help him solve his problems together, thus building up his sense of security and making him feel at ease to reveal his inner uncertainties and difficulties. On the contrary, if his experience makes him think that he is not smart enough, which will lead to his mother’s anger and complaints, he will not dare to tell the truth and even activate his self-protection mechanism to protect himself with lies that adults can uncover at first glance.

At this point, the child will not only fail to protect himself but will also get into more trouble because the mother will be rehabilitated and will take the initiative to admit her mistake and promise not to lie again. But in fact, his homework difficulties are not resolved, creating a vicious cycle.

Therefore, we encourage parents to learn to accept their children’s shortcomings so that they will have confidence in you and feel safe to open up to you.


The highlights of students First Semester Unit 4 in school

In this unit, K1 students learned about “The Little Goldfish Escaped.” They observed the growth of a little goldfish and even tried to feed it. The children also made goldfish tanks during the drawing activity, which they found exciting.

Moving on to the fourth unit of K2 students, the story of “Shana’s Red Sweater” is about how Grandma gave Shana a red sweater. However, Shana found that the shirt did not fit well, so she tried to change its size. During the activity, children explored the texture, color, thickness, and materials of clothes.

Finally, the theme of K3 this time was “The Angry Prince”. Through the content of the picture book, children learned how to manage their emotions and relax. During a mini-game, the children guessed the emotional pictures they wore on their heads. The teacher also allowed the children to draw different expressions during the drawing activities and captured their emotions with cameras so that the children could imitate the drawings. Overall, all the children were engaged in the theme activities.


The highlights of students First Semester Unit 3 in school

The third unit of K1 is “My Brother.”
In this unit, through the activity, the children get to know about their family members and learn to care for them. Apart from that, the children made a family picture frame to share their family members!

It was the second unit for k2; this time, it was an “ animal park.” In this chapter, all the children get to know different animals’ names. Terrariums were also made, and the children observed the growth of shrimps when they were grouped. The process was fascinating.

K3’s topic was “Drawing Lover.” The children try to create the story’s ending with others in the theme. The teacher and the children play together to become the story’s protagonist – Ah Fei likes to draw again and even engages in role play. The children are asked to try to play the role of Ah Fei and his good friends in the story to share their own experiences—interests, and things they like to do. During the activity, the teacher also made paintings with the children. The children used their favorite paints to create, and finally, their works turned into beautiful butterflies, using their imagination and creativity to engage the children in the activity.
