Things you always wanted to say but were afraid

Archive for the month “November, 2011”

If I had a quarter for everytime I heard the statement, “My child doesn’t lie.”

I cringe everytime I hear that particular sentence come from a parent.  Come on now.  If you are a person that would come unannounced into a place of business and be particularly demanding, I can see where anyone would lie to prevent seeing that side of you.  It is difficult for an adult to stand up to that kind of abrasive treatment much less a child that is looking to please you.  That particular sentence should be outlawed unless you yourself are Jesus and have never lied.  How can a child be something you cannot be?  It can be a good experience if handled correctly, but alas, parents would rather believe their own lies about their children’s honesty.(Or is it about their children’s lies?)  Quite a contradiction isn’t it?
