Lauren Markman commented on Lauren Markman's blog post 'You gotta stick with your lie'
"I find myself saying "you're not in trouble, but I'm just curious" to my son when I'm about to catch him in a fib. The simple statement that he is not in trouble usually results in him telling me the truth right away."

That time I got burnt by a sparkler

As the Fourth of July arrives, I am filled with childhood memories of summer: going to camp and catching fireflies, of riding bikes and when Dad fired up the grill because it was too hot for Mom to use the oven every night. I can even remember the one summer there was a lunar eclipse and I was allowed to stay up and watch it. What I don't remember is the time that I got burnt by a sparkler. As the…See More

"This is great! I love how you said to not scold them for telling the truth. I think this is so important because if you always fly off the handle when they tell you something, they will eventually get to where they won't tell you things because…"

You gotta stick with your lie

My son is not a good bluffer. Every time we play UNO, he lets out shouts of  "yes!" and "you guys are going down!" in reaction to the cards that he is dealt. And when I do catch him in a lie, he has at least a dozen little fidgety facial ticks and moves that gives him away.Yes, we teach our children the importance of being honest; yes, they lie to us anyway. But there is an upside: Lies may…See More

You give a little, you get a lot

Every Sunday morning, I give my son his allowance. He does a little song and dance he made up and races to his room to put the money into his three jars. So far, he's completely understood the purpose of his spend and save jars, but we haven't done much with his give jar. He knows that he has that jar in order to give back to the world, but we were waiting for enough funds to make an impact. So after a few…See More

As seen on TV: Doofus Dads

I know a lot of sitcoms from the 1980s: The Cosby Show, Growing Pains, Webster, Small Wonder, Whose the Boss?, My Two Dads, Diff'rent Strokes, Family Ties, The Wonder Years...there are a lot of them. Their theme songs get stuck in my head sometimes and I can recall a fair amount of the plot lines. I can also recall that they were fun for the whole family to watch.Today, my husband and I have…See More

Hi Lauren! Thanks for checking me out :-) I'm taking notes from your Bedtime for Children post. My 8 year old suffers from insomnia :-( Hopefully with your tips I can get him to sleep sooner.
