Re: Is it possible to parent your children without lying to them? Do you try?
I think I can honestly say I've never lied to my kids about anything.
I've let them have their own ideas about things, and not corrected them when they were wrong...
But I've never lied to them.
I really value honesty and I hate lying. I want my kids to place a high value on it, too. I think lying to them would be setting an AWFUL example. So I try my very best to be as honest as I can with them when I discuss anything, even difficult subjects.
I'm human, so I'm sure I've made some mistakes here and there, but overall, I don't purposely give them the wrong impression of things, or tell them flat out lies.
