There are many times when Faythe is found guilty of doing something, I notice she likes to avoid eye contact with us. I don’t know why? Probably that’s a sign of guilt…Mommies out there any idea?
The scrap is exactly how she looks when she’s guilty of doing something but refuse to admit. As she reaches her terrible 2 peak (I hope it will subside soon)…she’s at the peak of doing the things which you don’t want her to do, and yet after doing that, she gives me that guilty look and just keeping quiet don’t want to admit or say anything.
What is the best way to make them admit and not to interrogate them? I’m still trying to figure out how to do that professionally. As I don’t want my child to grow up doing the wrong things and dare not admitting their mistakes. At the same time I don’t want them to turn into finger pointing situation where they blame other people for their own wrong doing.
My current approach would be to ask her nicely, who did it..and eventually she’d admit, and I’d tell her that it’s OK to admit and make mistakes…but you have to admit and don’t blame on other people (e.g. maid, Vyktore) and I won’t scold you if you admit that’s you as I know they are still growing and learning. But I am not sure if she understand the importance of taking the blame vs passing the blame and how it could affect our attitude as we grow.
Now it makes me wonder, when will they actually understand. Well, of course I’m not into the lying stage…yet!!!
Any great tips from the Parents Blogger?
