How can you tell if your child is lying?

This post is for parents and teachers. I wanted to write about this topic because both parents and teachers sometimes can’t tell if a child is lying or not. Let’s say a child did something inappropriate in class and you want to figure out if he or she was the doer, you start questioning… But how can you tell if the child is innocent or guilty! Well there are many ways. I have been reading a lot about body language lately and here’s what I came up with.

So how can you tell if a child is lying?

1- Pay attention to the child’s voice. Is his voice high or low? Is he speaking fast or slow?  Is he providing information that you didn’t even ask about? Did your child pause?

2- There’s a sudden anger. Sometimes when you ask the child did you do that specific thing, he will answer with anger and indignation. “No, of course I didn’t do that! Why would you even think that? Why doesn’t anyone ever believe me? I’m out of here!”

3- Have the child repeat the story to see if there are any inconsistencies.

4- Look at your child’s body language. pay attention to facial expressions. Is he looking you in the eye or down at the floor? Is she biting her lip or the inside of her cheek? Is he blinking his eyes very fast or not blinking at all? For the young child, especially, does she look guilty or fearful?

 

Solution:

So if you do figure out your child is lying try not overreact especially if the child admitted  his lie.  Yelling at him will reduce chances of him coming forward with the truth in the future. Being truthful is a lesson you must teach your child, and it must be modeled as well. If your child seems to have a problem with excessive lying, you should discuss the matter with your child’s doctor.

Teaching isn’t rocket science — it’s harder.

farah brainy

I was reading this article By Jennifer Fox I loved it so I decided to share it with you.

What does it take to be an excellent teacher? It takes a wide variety of skills, emotional maturity and higher order thinking skills to be an effective teacher. It takes patience, lots of it.

How many people do you know who can not react but instead show compassion and understanding and in a flash come up with a teachable moment after being insulted by a recalcitrant teen?

It takes a sense of humor — but the right kind of humor, not sarcasm or quick wittedness, because that’s too easy and kids don’t respond positively to that. It takes the ability to strategize — to plan for multiple units covering different objectives while employing scaffolding techniques, authentic assessments and focus activities for the more than 75 individuals you will be responsible for on any given day. It takes compassion, curiosity and understanding — because the job demands developing real relationships with kids. It takes creativity and flexibility because you never know when the fire alarm is going to sound and put an end to the really great lesson you put together.It takes collaborative skills, because you will work on teams, task forces and attend multiple meetings. It takes a love of learning because you will need to stay abreast of all the latest developments in your subject area, brain research, and technology among other things you must keep learning. It takes generosity because you will be asked for more time, more resources and more caring than is written in your job description. You will also find yourself reaching into your own wallet to fund the great activity that needs extra supplies, or to bring in food for the students. It takes passion and a little something extra that draws kids to you. It takes all these things and more — all day — every day.

So how many people have all this in one package? Where are the folks with all these qualities? Some of them are in the classrooms in our schools and a lot of them are running companies for much greater sums of money than teachers make.

We can’t expect people with all this talent to go into teaching for altruistic reasons alone. People with this much talent and who have one of the most important responsibilities in the world deserve more. We won’t attract the right people unless we pay them what they are worth. There are many people teaching today with these very qualities, and many more who would go into teaching if it paid more.

Are you a teacher? Why did you go into teaching in the first place? Why do you stay? Have you left teaching? Why did you leave? Are you thinking of going into teaching? What holds you back?

Tips on how to keep your kids safe in summer camp…

   

 

    It’s summer time and your kids finished school and you parents are losing it aren’t you? Your kids want to go out everyday, they want to enjoy the beach, play soccer with their friends and they are out of control. Best option, enroll your kids in summer camp. First of all, you will be having some free time and finishing some of your work, while your kids are enjoying their time and improving their social skills, confidence, and having a great time. However, if you do choose this option you have to always keep your kids safe here are a few tips that I hope will help:

1. Always make sure your child is dressed comfortably with a cap and bottle of water and have him/her apply sunscreen.

2. Make sure that the summer camp you are enrolling your child into has a medical professional, nurse, and qualified trainers.

3. Be ware of all the program in the summer camp to have an idea of what kind of activities your child will be doing.

4. Make sure you talk to the person in charge of the summer camp and have him or her explain everything for you.

5. Talk to your child when he or she is back home and have them tell you what  about their day and open up to you. It is necessary to communicate daily,   you never know there might be something bothering them and it might be important. Bullying can happen, harassment (hope not), etc… So always keep your precautions.

I couldn’t come up with more tips if you have any please share. I wish you and your child will have a lovely summer vacation. 

With love,

Miss Farah
