I babysit my nephew in the morning b4 school. He LIES ABOUT EVERYTHING! Things that are meaningless! I'm afraid my 5 year old will pick up the habit, because we seem to be talking about it every morning, when I keep explaining that lying is bad and that if he would have told the truth, there would have been no trouble...etc. I repeatedly keep talking about the lies. I feel like if we talk about it all the time, he'll think it's normal. I've talked to my son about the lying, but I'm so afraid it will rub off on him. I don't want to talk to my nephew's dad for fear he'll get in a bunch of trouble (he's abusive), and it really won't make a difference in the lying. I'm sick of constantly trying to explain to him the greatness of truth and the horrible consequences of lying. Any advice?
