A survey shows that Hawaiians are the most honest. Being honest means honoring actions, words, and principles. For children, this means “don’t lie” and “admit if you’ve done something wrong”. The problem is that the truth is often embarrassing, and parents lie. Children ask difficult questions like why people commit suicide. And while the nation is 95 percent honest on average, many parents find it difficult to be honest when asked tough and morally difficult questions. And there are answers that children won’t understand. Being honest doesn’t mean telling a 6-year old that dead people’s bodies decompose and get eaten by worms. We are pretty honest, the survey says, but how about parenting and white lies?
