Body Language

Knowing how to interpret your child's body language will clue you in when something is wrong. Lack of eye contact and head pointing down means they are keeping something from you and cannot look you in the eyes for fear you will know. There are studies that have been done on reading body language so learning this information as a parents should be on your to-do list.

not making eye contact is a clear sign that they are not telling the truth

There are dozens of ways to read someone's body language.You will get a lot more out of speaking with someone if you learn to listen with your ears and eyes when speaking to your child.

If they take their left hand and rub up their nose with their index finger and rub down with the same finger now curled with the knuckle touching the nose. This is a trick I learned in school on how to tell if you are being lied to

This is a skill to have for life not just parenting. Learning to become more aware of a situation by raising your perception levels will get you to the finish line a lot quicker than those surrounding you.

Police officers are great at reading body language. That is part of their interrogation process is looking for body language when specific questions are asked.Only people that have been trained to lie can hide their body language from making them look guilty.

Or they are just afraid of telling the truth because they think they will be in trouble for getting bullies. You would be surprised to know how adolecent minds work and how far off adults are when figuring their problems. Often kids are worried about something that would be so far out of left field that you have to control your laughter when you finally find out what is bothering them.

I agree with PopPop because kids will look away for various reasons including not telling the truth but could be a list of different things. Thats why keeping an open line of communication will allow you to read your kid better.

Kids will become withdrawn when they are being bullied. They will secluded themselves, or snap, and become irritated easily. Knowing the demeanor of your child and a change is the biggest alert you can get. To get it out of them is when you need to ask, ask teachers, other parents, anything. Someone knows or has seen or heard something.
