HOW TO SPOT A LIAR
Double is trouble
A lying child may repeat your last statement in a ploy to gain time to think up a believable response.
Facing the facts
Changing facial expressions, or gestures such as nose scratching or brow wiping, often signal dissembling.
Missing a beat
Some kids know it's wrong to fib, they may deliver a whopper in a lowered voice, or change the tone or tempo of their speech.
Talking too much
A less-than-truthful child may feel compelled to fill empty air time with unsolicited information. Unless your kids is the type who reports every detail, rambling is a sure sing he's feeding you bull.
