How to Raise Cheating Kids
What do your kids think about cheating? Even if you’ve never asked them, you can tell a lot about their cheating philosophy by how they live. Have you noticed a pattern of cheating in their behavior? Do they cheat to win at board games? Do they cheat when it comes to getting their chores done? Have they cheated at school? Cheating is often the result of one of three things: wanting to get out of doing work (not studying for a test, not wanting to clean, etc.), wanting to win (make better grades), or wanting to relieve pressure (a parent who expects perfection, pressure from a teacher).
