What do you do with a child who is constantly trying to control everything? Or even just anything that isn't meant for them to control? All toddlers and preschoolers want some level of control (and tweens/teens is another push) and often times it's more than is really warranted. It's not even uncommon for young children to try to control siblings and even parents, where they go, what they do, "Mom stop singing." Or telling friends and siblings what or how to play.

How to teach honest telling and setting boundaries and expectations around honesty by age and without shaming.
