Lying, Stealing... Confabulation

Lying, stealing, confabulation, and more are irritating behaviors that can really "get our goats." Granted, while some lying is developmentally appropriate, these behaviors can also be complex and far more intricately tied to trauma and disrupted attachments than any of us ever suspected! In fact, they are one of our brain's instinctive (and frustrating!) go-to survival skills. Fortunately, once we understand more of "how" and "why," we can better support our children and ourselves.
