Parents And Children

I have four children. Each of my children has been brought up having the importance of truthfulness drummed into them from an early age. Today, all four of them are adamant truth tellers.They are completely honest. I can ask them any question and they will always tell me the truth.

When they were growing up, I made them each a promise. I said, "You will never get into trouble with me for telling the truth." And I kept my word. When they did something foolish, as all children do, I would listen to their stories without judging or criticizing and then ask, "Well, what did you learn?" They soon learned that they could always tell the truth and never suffer criticism or disapproval. They loved it.

Sometimes they fool around, but all I have to do is ask them for the truth and they will always give it to me, whatever it is. I'm very proud of them. It is absolutely amazing how much better relationships are between parents and children when they absolutely trust each other.
