We teach our children not to lie…
My own children will tell you that two
things that were not acceptable were
lying and stealing.. Thru their childhood,
it was common for me to get right up in
their faces about lying..
I taught them that telling the truth was a lot
easier, even if it was embarrassing or meant
they were in trouble. Because lying was a long
process. Remembering the lies was the hardest of
the parts, being stuck with a lie to the point of
no return. And then the broken trust that the lie
would bring to your relationship with who ever
you told the lie to.
So how does the parents who teach this, who
live by it, themselves… justify the lies that the
child hears on television especially from our
so called leaders? Lying seems to be acceptable
now with elections especially. It is said to be just
the person understanding of something, even tho
the liar knows full well, that the ad they produced was a lie.
