My daughter did - I used to wish she wouldn't be so truthful sometimes:)
I think most of them have probably withheld the truth at some point or another. I thought my daughter told me everything, but have since learned it was not the case.
No, not even the best of them! I think the term teenagers means teen agers! LOL
I would imagine that they tell the truth at least as much as the parents tell them. Looking back on my childhood it's clear my parents didn't always tell the truth and neither did I.
I don't think all teens lie, although at times they may omit things we would like to know. My girls didn't lie. They had a lot of freedom and respect from us and knew if they lied, they would lose that.
We never flipped out when they would tell us things, we always listened to whatever they needed to tell us.
Well, no not every truth they tell their parents. i remember when i was young, I dont tell my parents everything that happened sometimes.
My children know that i believe, trust them and that by lying or not telling the truth would make me unhappy, frustrated and disappointed. So they have to tell me the truth and I feel it when they lie to me.
I think that there may be some that don't lie, but I beleive they probably all withhold information, and even the best of them may lie at one point. It's due to the fact that they are not yet wholy formed human beings. My kids definitely did not tell me everything as it was happening, although they both eventually owned up, or told the truth when confronted directly.

So I have a six-year-old daughter who constantly lies. It has gotten to the point where I can't believe a word that comes out of her mouth. I've tried very hard to teach her how important telling the truth is and that it is a safety issue, but nothing is helping. I've just set up an appointment for...

Should children and teenagers have or not have cell phones? Why?
by Margaret Ann Tyler Johnson 6 years ago
Why do parents get upset that their child/children have lied to them? Why was it okay for them to lie on their behalf? Do you as a parent firmly believe it's a difference between a little white lie, a good lie, or a partial lie?

Why is there such a large communication gap between parents and teenagers?
