“I’ve read a couple of articles lately admonishing parents not to tell little white lies in front of their kids, for fear that they will learn that lying is acceptable. I not only tell some falsehoods in front of my kids, but I also teach them that it’s OK if they have to do it themselves. For the record, I do believe in honesty. I think lying and cheating for personal gain are deplorable. I often tell the utter, complete truth, even when it will make me look bad or make my life harder. But I’m not always 100%, brutally honest, and I teach my children that they don’t need to be either.”
