Lying to Children Hurts ALL of of Us, Especially About Christmas.

We live in a society where, for the most part, we do not like other people lying to us, AND, ... we usually get very angry about other people lying to us. BUT, all too often we hold a double standard by which we allow ourselves to lie to others, especially to our children.

The following articles discuss the difference between fictional stories that children know to be fictions versus outright lies into which adults often lead children. The articles also discuss some of the problems that we create for ourselves, our kids, and our society when we lie to our youngsters. If readers are honest, one must admit the truth of what the following authors are saying.

Though some might nit-pick at this, let us look at this issue from God's perspective in Mark 9:42:
"And whosoever shall offend one of these little ones that believe in me [Jesus Christ], it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea."
