My just turned 4 year old granddaughter (she lives with me), had a cupcake for snack a few minutes ago. She ate the icing off and asked for another. I told her that she could not have another she should eat the one she has.
I heard the trash cover close. She came with her empty plate and said she wanted another cupcake. I asked her if she threw her other one away. She shook her head no. I said I was going to put the cupcake paper in the trash. She told me no. There was her cupcake.
I told her that she could not have another cupcake and that fibbing and not telling me the truth was very bad. Should I have taken further action to instill the seriousness of lying?
