"Women of God can never be like women of the world. The world has enough women who are tough; we need women who are tender. There are enough women who are coarse; we need women who are kind... We have enough women of fame and fortune; we need more women of faith." -- Margaret D. Nadauld

Communicating…

Last night I caught Inigo in a lie.

A full on, outright lie.

To be fair, this kid is usually extremely honest.

Painfully 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!”

Oh really?

Is that the “new” way of thinking these days?
Just like “new math”,
telling untruths/lies can be construed as
”miscommunication?”

Nah.
Not in this house!!

Sorry.

Yes, he is human ; )

Lying is one thing I can't handle--I don't like how it can cause us to doubt whatever they say. Isn't parenting FUN.

Miscommunication = You not buying what he's dishing out.
If you were flexible, there would be no miscommunication, mom.
Yes indeed, I need me some SOS. I may have to run away in a couple weeks.:)

Sounds like he might need to go into Law.
Hope you went easy on him.
