WHY LYING IS WRONG
This is a guest post, written by LG, last year in second grade. I was cleaning up some files and came across it, decided to share it here, exactly as she wrote it. This was an "assignment" from Jif and me, as a consequence for an occasion of dishonesty. Apparently the child who started life in a crack house became increasingly concerned about avoiding "the big house." Do you think we laid it on a bit thick about how lying is bad?
In case you ever wondered...
Lying is wrong! It can put you in bad places. Also, it can make people dislike you. If you lie you will be unhappy like me. Nobody will trust you because they don't know if you are telling the truth. If you lie and your lie gets hundreds of people beliving what they think is true you lose friends very easiley.
Nobody not even you siblings will want to be around you when you lie. I don't want to lie any more and belive me I won't. People can get hurt by lying! Like if someone says, "Jump off that cliff I've done it hundreds of times and I never got hurt."
Grownup's lie about stealing and stuff like that that puts them in JAIL! I won't lie again espashally when I'm an adult because I don't want to be in jail! If your in jail you lose all your friends and than your lying will make them know your a bad person on the inside instad of a good person. I will never lie again I just want to be a good person and not lie.
I have learned my leason that lying can hurt you and other people. I have learned from punishments that when I grow up could be jail. These are reasons why lying is really very, very wrong. I have learned never to lie.
It can put you in very bad places.
