When Children Lie

When I first wrote “Johnny the Cat and Bronco Ride that Bull” I included the twins, J.C. and Bronco lying to their Ma and then later pretending not to hear their Pa and answer him. When children lie its usually not to be mean or malicious. It is generally because they want something or to do something that we as parents would not approve of or say no to. When the rodeo arrived in Pecos, the twins were so excited that it was all they could think about. When they asked their Ma, she said they couldn’t go anywhere until they finished their chores. Do you know what the boys did? They hurried through their chores so they could watch the rodeo being set up. Once all their chores were finished, J.C. and Bronco rushed outside. Their Ma, Mary, strongly told them to stay in front of the family Cafe’ while she continued working and preparing for the dinner crowd. She called out to them as they raced out the front door, to stay nearby. The twins, without hesitation said, “Sure Ma.” Then they scurried down Main Street. They weren’t trying to hurt their Ma, they just felt she would stop them from watching the rodeo being set up. When they reached the end of the street, their Pa, who worked at Ray’s Blacksmith shop in the afternoons, saw them and told them to slow down and they pretended not to hear him. Children lie by example. Many times we tell a lie to avoid an unpleasant task, avoid another person or an event, or to simply get of a job we really don’t want to do.  Both children and adults are clever enough to figure it out. Of course, lying has consequences. When you have the opportunity, check out my book, “Johnny the Cat and Bronco Ride that Bull”. It will show your children that when they lie there are always consequences. This is also true in “Misplaced Trust.” The lying primarily from an adult that was the child of a parent that has passed think nothing of it as it is all about the money for them. Of course, they eventually suffer the consequences. Have you ever notice this? The Good Gus Series is available online at Kindle, Nook and Waterstones.
