Last night I caught Inigo in a lie.
A full on, outright lie.
To be fair, this kid is usually extremely honest.
I haven’t caught him in a lie in months.
Last night was one of those times where he felt it was easier to “stretch the truth.”
(The kid IS human, after all!)
He was being punished and dealing with the consequences of his actions
(non-violent of course)
and he said,
“But mom, it was just a miscommunication!”
Is that the “new” way of thinking these days?
Just like “new math”,
telling untruths/lies can be construed as
Not in this house!!
