What the Expert Says:

Hello and thank you for writing to JustAsk!

Children are clever!  Sometimes kids can learn how to manipulate parents to a point where they do, indeed, pull the "wool over our eyes".  

Keeping lines of communication open and letting your child know the "family rules" can help deter the "white lies" and "sneakiness" that children sometimes do!

Good luck!
