It is true what they say, "you need a thousand lies to cover up one lie" and sometimes it really is not worth it. In certain situations, telling a small white lie doesn't seem like a big deal but in the long run, it brings nothing but hurt.
Whether it is a debate on jumping a red light or something to do with a greater crisis; always tell the authorities the truth. Lies will only get you into more trouble.
Parents tend to tell their kids that their beloved pet has been sent to the â€œfarm houseâ€. We really need to stop doing this. Death is a very normal occurrence in our world, the sooner kids learn to deal with it, the stronger they will be.
