1. Telling Lies
It can be so tempting at times to tell our kids little white lies. Your intentions are usually in the right place and you often get away with it. But that doesn’t make it right. The worst part of all about telling our kids a lie is when you get caught. The disappointment and injustice of it all is more than I can bear to think of putting my boys through. I’ve found that as cliché as it is to say, honesty always really is the best policy. Have an open and honest conversation with your child when time allows… I’m always amazed at how much children really do understand.
