A Lying Video Book: All About Lying
Interesting Video Book For Kids About Lying
I’m sure growing up we were all told at one time or another that lying isn’t nice – especially if you were caught red-handed in one. But did we really learn from the humiliation and embarrassment of that situation?
If we were to keep track of each lie we told each day for a week, we may be amazed at just how many untruths slip past our lips. Sure we can justify them by saying that these “little white lies” are saving people’s feelings. But is this really why we lie? Is it the person’s feelings we are considering or our own personal discomfort with the situation?
Nobody wants to be the one to tell a friend or acquaintance…”yes, you DO look fat in that outfit” Or…”if I have to spend another minute in your presence I might run away screaming.” (I speak from experience).
I don’t believe anyone started out as a liar. I believe we have been socially conditioned to let half-truths and false answers guide us on our daily dealings with the world and the people in it. The words “politically correct” have become many of our mantras and we don’t dare sway from that in case we offend someone.
I don’t believe it is okay to offend someone by using derogatory statements about color, race, creed etc. However, haven’t we taken this to a whole new level? I dislike having to stop and wonder what the correct term this week is as to not cause offense.
If you really want to know the truth about yourself, then forget about the salesperson trying to sell you a size two in that last designer dress when you really know you are a few sizes bigger – salespeople may be some of the biggest fibbers around, especially when they are commissioned based. If you think you may be getting a bit saggy in places, then take your question to the brutally honest feet of a child.
Most young children haven’t learned to lie yet and will tell you the way they see things. It may not be what you want to hear, but at least it will be honest.
So I guess the question we should be asking ourselves is, why do we teach our children its not nice to tell the truth? Sure as any parent can attest to, you don’t want little Johnny telling Nana she has a big hair growing from her chin or she smells funny, because that would make us look like bad parents. So we teach Johnny instead to, what, not notice, not point it out, and remain silent? But is this just not another way of saying…”it’s okay to lie?”
I challenge you this week to keep track of every time you tell a lie, whether it be big or small. Then ask yourself why? Could you have told the truth in this situation? Did you lie to save someone’s feelings, your own hide or simply because it would have been uncomfortable for you?
Let’s stop lying to ourselves and others and start living the truth. After all, the truth shall set you free…
