What is it about lying?
Last night we had two patients that in a professional nursing way, we would call "extremely poor historians" -- meaning they told us lies.
Why would you tell a lie to someone who is going to help you.
And how sad would it be to live a life full of lies, not remember who you told what to?
I find, as a mom, it's really hard to punish lying. I mean... do I truly KNOW if Conner brushed his teeth, or ran his toothbrush under the water to pretend he brushed. I truly want to punish bad behavior... but I also want him to know I trust and love him.
Do you guys have any way of dealing with lying in your kids?
I think my main thing is to realize the consequences of lying. For instance, that he'll have his teeth rot and have to spend a lot of time at the dentist if he doesn't brush. Also, taking him to church and letting him know the feeling of guilt when he does something wrong.
Anyway, that's my thoughts for today.
