Hilltown Families


Dear Sarah,

My daughter is only 7 and already she has started lying to me about things. Most recently she told me she had brushed her teeth but I know that she didn’t. I don’t know what to do.


Panicked Parent

In our world where fake news is so prevalent, how do we teach our children to be truthful? How do we practice truth ourselves? Pain Specialist and Yoga Instructor Ginny Hamilton again turns to yoga philosophy for guidance, along with Dickinson & the New York Times Opinion Pages. Tell it Slant, in this month’s Off the Mat: Reflections on the Practice of Parenting.

Potty training? There’s a book. Sleep training? Plenty of step by step approaches. How to ride a bike? YouTube tutorials galore. How to be honest? Ginny’s sources aren’t on the library’s parenting shelf. In this month’s “Off the Mat: Reflections on the Practice of Parenting,” she asks honest questions about honesty.
