Lying

For Lying or other offenses of the tongue, I "spank" my kids' tongues. I put
a tiny drop of hot sauce on the end of my finger and dab it onto my child's tongue.
It stings for a while, but it abates. (It's the memory that lingers!) I've also
heard parents using lemon juice or apple cider vinegar.

Draw up a contract with your child. After everyone agrees that lying, for example,
is a cause for correction, establish and transcribe a reasonable punishment.
Have you and your child sign and date the document. Then, whenever a situation
comes up that would invite lying, gently remind him about the contract. Knowing
that you will follow through on the penalty may be the extra incentive your child
needs to choose to tell the truth.
