Liar, Liar pants on fire - Page 2
My son however need a little extra guidance. The kid was wily and had an answer for every question. The cave was being worked on so they couldn't go see it. He only had two Wii remotes in the house because the others were just for back up. I'm telling you, this kid was so good I started to maybe think there was a cave in his yard. Perhaps the kid was really Batman. For a while I thought it possible. Finally, what worked with my son was simple reason. When he got particularly upset about not having such amazing features in our house (you know, like a cave!) I sat him down and asked him to really think about it. We have been to said house hundreds of times and explored every part of the yard. Wouldn't he have seen a cave? We have played that Wii thousands of times, don't you think the 100 remotes would have come up another time? Also, don't you think 100 remotes is kind of silly? Why would he need all of those? We talked about why his friend might tell him these things. We also talked about why he didn't really need to call his friend out on it. All he really needed to worry about was his own feelings and those could be protected with the fact that he had plenty of great stuff in his life and it didn't really matter what he had in relation to his friend-true or not.
We survived these tall tales. I just hope I'm prepared for the next. I am sure there will more celebrity sightings and technology treasure troves in my future. Kids will be kids right?
