Small children will lie because they're unsure how their parents will react to the truth when they've done something wrong, and they know they've done something wrong. Toddlers are well aware when they're doing what they shouldn't be doing. If they touch something and it breaks and mom or dad ask them if they broke it, 9 times out of 10 the child will instinctively say they didn't.
How parents react when their child does something wrong is the example that teaches the child whether telling the truth is better for them in the long run than lying is. Good parents react positively to small children who tell the truth.
Parents as Foo describes obviously don't teach their children that honesty is the best policy.
I don't understand for one minute, why you would lie to your children. I would want my kids to be truthful and trustworthy and you have to be that way yourself. Setting good examples is the best parenting.

So, to be clear, if/when our US Supreme Court ever again has a large number of conservatives judges on it, say 7-2, and there was open discussion of the court reviewing and/or reversing Roe vs Wade, you can guarantee me that no Pro-Choice woman in this nation would express fear that they could face possible procesution if the court declares abortion to be illegal again?
Are you assuming that all PC women have HAD abortions, BS? Don't be an idiot.

You mean for abortions they'd had BEFORE abortion was made illegal? No, I'm pretty sure they wouldn't be afraid of that.

I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for your "conservative" judges to overturn RvW if I were you.

People have made meth, killed other grown humans, slept with other people they were not married to, and all sorts of stuff in houses "does that make it right?
By the way, if they make meth in a house or a car, if they get caught, it is always reported as a meth lab, so yes abortions done in a house, is an abortion clinic.

Ink, did your young children fall asleep wondering what Santa would bring on Christmas morning? Or did you tell them that Mommy and/or Daddy are wrapping your presents to put under the tree?

No doubt my idea of perfection and yours differ. Still, I find it amusing to read that you never lie, and Lily (who previously posted as LynneD), don't have any qualms lying about lying.

Does anyone else see the irony?

I guess you can hold the tradition of Santa against me. I thought we were talking about the ongoing lifestyle of lying to children day to day and therefore teaching them to be liars. Foo gave many examples none of which I ever lied about. My children even had to face the death of a brother and we didn't lie about that either.

Other than Santa, I don't see any reason to lie to your kids.

My daughter is just fine, and atleast I thought enough to let her be born.
Here name is Chloe, not choice.
I know enough about science. True science backs up the bible.
Like your buddy said, tornados rip trees down, and ice cubes knock them over, but in order to be a fossil, they must be buried quickly. So there goes that idea.
When they do find a dino bone, it is rare they find a comple skeliton.k
A head here, and a leg there, or many different wads of bones, mixed together.
So either, a dino's head fell off and quikly sank in the mud, or a flood occured, and the dinos drowned, floated to the top, the after a few weeks began to break apart, and sink down into the mud.
As long as God lives, then there will be those who try to discredit Him.
they seek a sign, but no sign shall be given.
Anyone can be a "decent " person, but one must be sinnless in the eyes of God, to enter heaven.
Those covered by the blood of the Lamb are rightous in Gods eyes, those not, are self rightous.
Still laughing.

She is correct that parents teach their children the art of manipulation, starting at a young age. I added that, as the brain develops, a child puts two and two together, and figures things out, even without being taught. They learn from experience, one way or another. Ifnfants are without guile or dishonesty. They are incapable of "sin." Life teaches them "sin" as their ability to think develops.

Of course not. I believe women have a right to make autonomous private medical decisions. Abortion will never be illegal, again, imo.. However, if you aren't full of crap, you will put your money where your mouth is. Stop fantasizing about lawsuits and file one, please. Or, you can blab away and expect someone else to fight your battles for you. Whatever.

Okay I misunderstood. You are saying that kids don't lie unless they are taught to by their parents as foo says and everybody teaches their children to lie. I wouldn't call a toddler's lie a sin but at what age did you start teaching your kids to not tell the truth?

They would be laughed out of court. You have to have legal standing to file a suit, and you woldn't have it. Nor would the fetuses.

<quoted text>
What if someone was to file say a class-action civil suit against all the abortion clinics and contraceptive companies on behalf of the fetuses/babies/people that were murdered inside their mother's wombs? The class-action suit would be just a symbolic gesture, no monetary award would be sought.

Nah, they wouldn't.
Have a marvelous New Year everyone!
Long Night Moon 13:
Do you want to get on the subject of animal cruelty? Because that's a pretty big subject.
How about puppy mills where female dogs are used strictly as breeding stock for profit and once they are used up they're tossed aside. Want to talk about that? I guess it doesn't matter the species, the males just see the females as breeding stock.

You fool me not:
So you think that having a pet's fetus ripped off her womb is animal cruelty?
Could you tell me, would it be cruelty towards the pregnant pet or towards her fetus or towards both?
Thanks!
http://www.topix.com/forum/news/abortion/T833...
HOWEVER,
As you can see for yourself, the thought of performing abortions on pets, that is, ripping the animal fetus off its mother womb, made you think immediately of animal cruelty.
THEREFORE,
You do consider abortion on pets a type of cruelty (and itwould be) but are too much of a coward to publicly say who you think would be the target of animal cruelty in this case, the fetus, the pregnant pet or both.
AND,
What's more pathetic, is that you consider pet abortion animal cruelty, but think nothing of pre-born human beings being ripped apart in their mother's womb.
You are a disgusting human being and you are pure evil.
Think what you want. There's no need to ask me anything if you're going to write my side of the conversation for me and tell me what I must be thinking and believing.

Happy New Year to you.

Your Jesus probably lived near an" abortion clinic," then. Thank God, abortion is legal and as safe as any surgical procedure can be. Your comparison of abortion to meth manufacture, sex, and "all sorts of other stuff" is inane, and that's being kind.

I'm not in a position to have to lie. What is the benefit of lying. Lying just comes back to bite you especially in my business. If you tell the truth you don't have to remember your lies.
