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

I just mean something that you, yourself, do not believe is true. Like with the neighbors dog dying, your child asks where the dog went. If you say "he went to a new home" you can say that's a true statement becaus eyou believe the dogs soul is in heaven or in the cosmos or whatever,. But if you know that now your 3yo thinks the doggy moved to a new town, then you're giving a false perspective
