Re: Truth be told: When it’s OK to tell a white lie
Telling lies is just about the only thing that my three year old gets spanked for. If she tells me that she has lied and then tells the truth then she gets time out, but if she continues to lie then she gets a spanking and time out until she is ready to tell the truth. She learned that telling the truth was much better very quickly. All other offenses, she gets a time out and good talking to.
I have never been a good liar and was raised not to lie about anything. I have been called blunt, but have never lacked for friends because people know that I will not deceive them.
