Re: Is it possible to parent your children without lying to them? Do you try?

My kids would not take that as an answer. I have never tried, but I know they wouldn't. We skim over or nice up things that might get that kind of answer. Which I still think is kind of lying, its definitely not telling the whole truth and letting them come to their own conclusion.
