Who knows..........maybe only the shadow knows.......the truth that is.
My oldest two were having issues this morning. There was arguing and pushing involved. One says one thing, one says another but I am unsure of the truth. I sat them down and told them, I am not going to pick who is telling the truth and who is lying, you will sit here until someone decides to tell the truth. They sat for at least 15 minutes, not a peep. Clearly it was not working. So, since they were both wrong in the altercation, I told them okay, you two know the truth and are choosing not to let it be known. So the both of you will be cleaning the kitchen and dining room from top to bottom. You will not speak to each other but you will clean it properly. You were both wrong. Someone is lying but I do not know who and so both of you are going to be punished for your wrong in your fight. Just know, telling the truth gets you out of trouble sooner than persisting in a lie. After you are done, we will talk again.
Who knows the truth? So they are both cleaning until it meets my specifications. They are 13 and 10.
Now if only I had an app for truth detection...LOL
