Re: Is it possible to parent your children without lying to them? Do you try?
Possible? Absolutely. Lying as defined by the OP is a choice, therefore it's something a parent has control over. All you have to do is choose not to lie when the situation presents itself.
BUT, I don't necessarily think that's a healthy way to raise a child. I believe it's important to raise a child to experience common aspects of life, good and bad, and lying is, unfortunately, part of life.
