Can You Tell If Your Kids Are Lying To You?

Probably not!  A new study found that parents pretty much no idea when their kids are lying and when they’re telling the truth. Here’s why.




The researchers had parents watch videos of their kid either telling a lie or telling the truth, and they found that the parents could only predict if their kid was lying or not slightly over half the time.

In other words, you might as well just flip a coin to decide whether your kid is being honest with you.


And that’s the problem, we REALLY want them to be honest.  The parents were far more likely to guess that their kids were telling the truth even though half the videos showed kids lying.
