Why do teens lie?
1. Because you don't understand
Your teenagerâs world is very different from yours.
Don't dismiss their emotions as a waste of time. Fights with friends, not getting invited to outings and other things like this which seem minor to us are actually huge for them.
Listen and empathize
2. Because they don't feel good enough
Teens are terrified of disappointing their parents.
Don't get angry when they perform badly. Focus on learning from failures.
3. Because you always say "no"
The teens are a time of exploring and experimenting. Teens will explore and experiment no matter what you say.
Stop saying NO And start saying YES to what they want to do.
Then help them find a way to do what they want in a safe way.
Your teen does not WANT to lie.
Your teen wants you to understand
Your teen needs your help
Your teen needs your support
Be the parent your teen needs so that your teen can be themselves.
That will stop the lying
