How To Handle Lying In Kids With Adhd
-Got pulled into the argument vortex about his lying, which could last for hours.
-Would hold things over his head until he told the truth.
-Lecture him on why lying was bad.
-When kids with ADHD lie, it is often out of feeling ashamed.
-Trying to get them to fess up only causes them to feel more ashamed, lessening the chances of them telling the truth.
Lying is often done impulsively, without any forethought because forethought requires you to use your internal dialogue which is lagging in kids with ADHD.
The ADHD brain is delayed in non-verbal working memory thus they may not visualize various potential outcomes of a situation.
: What I teach parents in & -, my Parent Behavior Training program is to focus on the clean up, not the lie. This help kids understand that making amends to others and moving forward is whats most important.
