I know that adults often lie about things like Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny. However, how about when they tell scary stories to make kids behave, or when they lie about family problems? What other lies do adults tell? Do you think it is wrong?

Yes, I agree with you completely. My husband's ex-wife used to lie to the kids about us. It was very frustrating, because we didn't want to call her a liar!
I agree that it is much harder to remember a lie than the truth!
I love your answer about the kind of lies we should not tell our children. I agree that it is far better to just say "I do not know" sometimes, than to make up a lie that may only confuse or hurt children more. Thanks for your thoughtful comment.
Thank you for your comments about lying. My daughters always told me that if I said, "I'll think about it," I really meant "no." I had to laugh when I read your comments, because it doesn't take long for our children to figure us out, does it?
