I value truth above all else. My children will warn you not to lie to me because when I find out it will not be pretty. I can handle most everything else with grace just not lies or liars. You may hurt my feelings for a few minutes by being honest but I will get over it, eventually. I may never get over it if you lie to me and I do mean NEVER.
There is a difference between lies and stories told to children to fill their hearts with magic and wonder. I view those more as folk tales anyway. Something adults have elaborated on and shared with our children to better their lives not something used to cover up ugliness they have created.
What do you value?
