I think that honesty is the most important thing. It is so important to me that when I had children I did not tell them about Santa, the Easter Bunny, etc. because I never wanted to lie to them, even if it was supposed to be for their “fun”. In a world filled with dishonesty I wanted them to know that there is ONE person who they can always trust. A few people gave me a hard time about this but I didn’t care. My children are all grown now and they don’t feel like they missed out on their childhood at all, but rather they appreciate that they have someone who they know will always be honest with them, no matter what. Honesty is a gift that is invaluable. LikeLiked by 2 people Reply I love your story using honesty! There are so many blurred lines between truth and lie, especially with children, so seeing the choice you made was a glimpse into the versatility of the parenting world. Thank you so much for sharing your experience! LikeLiked by 1 person Reply I totally feel this piece. Honesty is something that truly brings people together and we can build a world upon a solid foundation of being accountable and real. Lies tear down relationships and so many things. Lies can also cause war too, if it is on the political level. Thanks for sharing this! Have a great weekend!
