The Truth Will Set You Free
I've had a lot of tough conversations with my kids. I'm sure there will be many more. This one was tough. I had to confront one boy about lying. There was no question that he was lying about taking something of his brother's. We asked him to tell the truth and he fudged around but finally admitted that he was embarrassed and had lied.
I want him to know that telling the truth will make him feel better. Admit that you made a mistake, made a selfish choice, and then let it go. Don't carry that shame. Set it down and move on.
