- Be a good role model to your child.
Children do what they see, not what they read. The child who opens his eyes to life first sees his parents and tries to learn life by imitating them. Being a honest parent everywhere in human relationships, family relations, is the harbinger of an honest child.
- Do not test your child.
Do not ask your child the answers to the questions which you know, because you will make the child feel repetitive that you are not honest and do not believe him.
- Tell stories about honesty.
According to the child’s age group, stories about honesty should be chosen. Because, besides the honest behavior of the parents, the stories that support honest behavior and are told from their mouths are also very important.
- Righteousness brings happiness
Tell your child that lies lead to lies and that correct and honest behavior always results in happiness.
- Do not compel your child.
Tell your child about integrity and honesty in a mood of conversation. Ask him what he thinks about it and what he comes to mind when honesty is said. Because speaking style like giving a lesson can cause fear of making mistakes on children. And it should be known that nobody is perfect, everyone has the right to do it wrong.
- Praise your child.
Praise them for every honest act your child does. As an example, you made me very happy for choosing accuracy.
- Talk about the Consequences of Lying.
Try to explain this with a story and a situation you experience with your child, because younger children have a more concrete perception.
