  • HELL NO! That is my BIGGEST no no with him...he knows he will get in more trouble if he lies than telling the truth about doing something wrong!

  • I don't mind little white lies but she never lies-at least not yet. She's 5 though so I don't know what's coming!!

  • Nope. It's not okay. Being lied to or accused of lying is one of my major buttons.

  • no. My daughter will get in more trouble for lying than she will for being honest and upfront. If it's an accident and she tells me right up front what she did, she won't get punished.. if she lies.. oh yes is she getting grounded.
