Dr. Robyn Silverman answers one reader’s question about teaching her child integrity:

I caught my 6 year old son Danny in his first lie the other day.  He told me he had his jacket on as he called to me before going outside to play with the boy next door.  When I looked outside, there he was with no jacket in sight.  How do I get him to do what is right and honest instead of what is easiest and fastest? — Amy H, Youngstown.
