When it comes to a full-blown meltdown, there are always two sides to every story.
It’s every parent’s nightmare – losing your child in a public place. And yet, many toddlers love going off to explore, oblivious to – or perhaps in spite of – the fright it can cause their parents. Why?
Is it wrong to leverage this idea and encourage our kids to “disobey” us? Are we teaching them that it’s good to be bad?
Don’t worry, parents. Toddler untruths are associated with highly developed cognitive skills. After all, lying is a pretty complicated task.
