Liar, liar, pants on fire

Liar, liar, pants on fire

Davidson Roger, Sports Writer

Kids lie so much. I know because I once was a kid. We lie for no apparent reason. You could tell the truth but a voice in the back of your head tells us that if you lie, there will be no consequences to face.

To our feeble minds, the truth is overrated. We’ll listen to just about anything our negative conscience tells us. I’m not saying kids never tell the truth. But majority of what they say are lies. If the truth would get the kid a whipping, and a lie a timeout, then the kid would definitely lie to get out of that particular situation.

I’ve lied many times as a child, so when I have my own children, I won’t be too naïve.

I’m just glad children tell the truth sometimes. Kids should know that the truth will set you free, because in the end, lies always catch up to you.
