(+27...9) asks should parents lie 🤥 to their children?
When children are very small👶, occasional lies to children are harmless. In fact, some lies can be quite fun for both children and adults, imaginary creatures 🦄🐲🎅 for example. Small white lies in order to avoid excessive distress can shield children from harsh realities and keep a day with small children go much more smoothly. As children grow older and approach their teenage years, lies should become less frequent and eventually cease completely. Teenagers are especially sensitive to lies and lies will endanger the already precarious parent-child relationship at this difficult age. Children need to be taught the value of truth and sincerity, and parents should always lead by example.
