Book Description

Knowing when your children are evasive, deceptive, or are afraid to talk about sensitive topics is critical because youthful indiscretions begin with deception and miscommunication. Fortunately, most of the time children and teenagers tell the truth and you need not worry. However, the time to worry is when they become evasive or deceptive, because they know they have either done something that you would not approve of or are reluctant to discuss a sensitive topic.Fibs to Facts: A Parental Guide to Effective Communication provides the tools necessary to strengthen the parent-child bond. .

5.0 out of 5 stars good book on detecting deceipt June 16, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
There are several books geared towards detecting lies in people, but this book is specifically set out to help you get the truth from your children. It tells you techniques to use as well as cautioning to what questioning can result in long-term damaging relationships. An example is constantly questioning whether they speak the truth or not. The book instructs on how to listen for cues of deceit and narrow stories down to be truthful.

This is a great parent-centered approach to keeping teens and preteens honest. The author is clearly an expert in the field. My "lie-dar" is now fully functional.
