Kids tell the truth even when it’s not easy.
AT HOME - Model honesty in your daily life. Be honest with your children, your spouse, telemarketers, salesmen, store clerks, coworkers, friends, neighbors, relatives - and yourself.
FOR THE KIDS - Surround yourself with friends who value honesty. These are people who don’t lie about losing their homework when they just didn’t do it; who don’t tell their parents they’re going one place when they’re really going somewhere else. Reinforce each other’s efforts to be honest. When your honest, people trust you.
