And Nothing But The Truth

Finally !!
Pinky admitted to taking the earrings.

We had a nice calm family discussion about why lying is wrong and why we don't take things without asking.

She admitted to taking them but it was like pulling teeth...and there was no remorse. None at all whatsoever.

And that worries me.

At least Daisy admitted that it was sometimes hard for her to tell the truth, and she seemed like she was regretful. But it could just be an act.

I've always felt like I was in tune to my children. I can tell when they're lying, happy sad or trying to be sneaky. I thought I knew them like the back of my hand.
But I looked Pinky in the eye and I could not tell if she was lying or telling the truth.

We've got to work on these issues before we hit the teenage years.

If you can figure out how to discern all the lying, you could sell it and be a rich woman. I know a heap of mamas who'd pay you good money for these answers. Lying drives me NUTS. Sorry you're having to deal with it also.

Thanks Cindy,
It is so frustrating at times. I've talked to her until I've gone blue in the face.
Hopefully something will make an impact. I don't want to have to put a lock on my bedroom door. I don't want to feel like I'm living in a prison.
