I really liked the What Matters article "Fuzzy Wuzzy." I also think it's very hypocritical when parents lie to their children because they think their little ears can't handle the truth while expecting their kids always to be honest with them. Kids are smart, and usually know when someone is lying. If you don't want somebody doing something, don't do it in front of them, especially impressionable little kids.
