  • I don't plan to lie, but to tell the truth in an age appropriate way.

  • Its not ok to lie but sm things r fine like telling them ur pet goldfish went somewhere else rather then actually dieing! U also have to consider their age when explaining things to them like I am going to wait until its the right time to explain to my DD why my mother & I have not spoken now 6 yrs & how my adopted parents became my adopted parents. I think timing is everything sometimes.

  • I think if they are old enough to ask they are old enough for the truth.

  • little lies, like no money for toys.. or stupid stuff. But I would never lie about something big.
