  • If I am lied too, it is hard for me to trust you ever again. White lies are not okay in my opinion b.c a white lie may need a bigger one to cover that. People confuse their stories when they lie, so people will get caught eventually

  • Maybe they'll think you might over-react to the truth.

  • Whites lies are okay, if your answer is going to be one that is really going to hurt someone's feelings really bad. Suppose you went to a party and you ask a friend if she liked your new dress? Wouldn't you feel really embarrassed and run out of the room? Sometimes it's okay. But if you have to keep lying to get out of a lie, then that's when you get in trouble, and it shouldn't have started in the first place. Sometimes, the truth hurts.

  • It shouldn't be hard, but if you are referring to kids then that is a whole other issue. Kids will lie so they will not get grounded or worse, have us be upset with them. It's not right, but they do it anyway

  • I don't like lairs either. Too many evil scientists and bears hanging around.

    Just giving you a hard time. I think kids like because they are scared of getting in trouble for what they actually did. I'm not sure why adults lie, but I'd guess the reasons are pretty similar.

  • I know kids lie I don't mind I usually catch them lying and call them on it... If I asked someone if my dressed looked ok and they told me what they thought it wouldn't hurt my feelings atleast I wouldn't know the truth. White lies build its better to be honest but no one will
