My Child Brags to his Friends

She says that My 8-year-old son, Zac, continually explain long stories about himself. He tells his friends that he has a black belt in karate, when in actuality he hasn’t done martial arts since he was 5. Or he’ll boast about what a brilliant guitar performer he is when in actuality he’s never had lessons.

Empathize, don’t criticize: It looks like Zac has a little sense of self. So instead of condemning him for stretching the truth, try understanding him.

Say, “A black belt in karate. That’s a great goal. Would you like to make that come true?”

Or, “A guitarist is a beautiful thing to want to be. How could we make that happen?”

Make a good relation with your son before his behavior right and reasonable, and keep away from blaming or shaming, which will only make him feel inferior.

Wait it out: It may take losing a friendship over boasting before he “gets it.” It might be difficult for you to listen to, but some children have to learn things the hard way.

Boost his self-esteem: It’s usual to want to feel capable, significant, and respected. It may be that Zac is having complexity with his peers and want to impress them with this way.

As a mother focus those things which he does well to increase his self-confidence. Be sure and show him that you love him a lot, even if he isn’t a master at karate.
