Kindergarten Emotional Development

4 of 7

They lie and put the blame on others.

Kindergarteners often resort to lying and blaming others for their own wrongdoings. They don’t realize how easy it is for adults to detect lies. They don’t yet have the ability—the security, the confidence or the language skills—to accept blame.

What you should do: As strange as it sounds, you don’t need to be a stickler about lying at this stage of your child’s life. Be aware that a child most often lies because she’s afraid of disappointing an adult, and teach her how to accept blame.
