Maximum students tell lie with their parents for example a child is saying school madam demanding 100rs. because I was absent for one week. Parents not asking any more and handover the money. I feel this is not good. Small students told lie with your parents they are not feeling well so not want to go to school. Actual the students dont want to goto school but saying not feeling well. Some students told their parents I am going school but not reach into the school and goes for seeing the movie with friends. Lots of parents faces this problem for new generation child. Do you remembered any incident where you are telling lie with your parents to hide any secrets. Afterwords you feel bad.

Many kids tend to do that so parents should be careful in those situations. I lied too sometimes that I was sick, but only because I couldn't prepare for the next day and I was extremely stressed. I studied well, but our teachers expected so much from us that I found humanly impossible. But many kids do that because they don't care about their studies at all.

i agree with that, i had a friend who's 10 years younger than me and he often lie not to his parents but his brother and sister since they are orphans. He lied that he go to school but the truth is he's not, we older friends of him used to scold him because that's not good manner and habit.

Yes friend this is not good habit telling lie with any family members but why it is need and generally when child telling lie means something wrong there. Parents always think their child is telling truth.

Thank goodness I was not in the habit to lie to my parents...we lived in a small town so sooner or later they would know the truth so I did prefer to tell the truth even if I got a slap or two.

I agree that telling lies to your parents is not a healthy tendency, especially when it becomes a habit.It can have far reaching consequences ...I too face many such incidents in school where parents come and enquire about their children and I tell them to go to the root of the problem since it is possible to set it right when the children are still very young.In my own case, I never really can remember a single incident when I had to tell lies to my parents.I had the confidence to share everything with them and they in turn were very understanding and supportive...

I feel that there is no such thing as being a nice person just because of certain things we do.What is important is being responsible and listening to ones conscience, in the bargain we might hurt others , one can never be sure...

Well honestly I've lied to my parents a lot of times already. But my lies doesn't alter my studies and grades. My lies are not so toxic. Maybe I lie when I tell my mom that I'm late in going home because class dismissed late but the truth is I'm with friends after class. But I never lie to cut class or to stay home and absent. In fact, I am the kind of student who is afraid to commit an absence in school. I care about my grades. I feel that it is my responsibility to do good in school to repay the hard works of my parents in order to send me to school.

But friend try to avoid telling lie because if parents knows truth from third person then feel bad. Our parents always think about us.

Those students do those lies, so they will not be scolded, my friend. For sure, if they tell them the real reason, they will be berated. Those who do that are really those that are not interested in their studies and presume that their parents would anyway have some more money to send them to school. Sad, when they are like that.

Yes friend if the child tell original reason then also parents can give the money telling lie is not good habit.

I can remember faking not feeling well, and then going any playing hookie when I was in the 6th grade. The kids were planning something, and I thought everyone was against me so I decided to skip school instead. I did get caught and got in trouble for it, but if I would have gone it would have been a Surprise party, so I picked a wrong day to skip for sure. I think personally especially if a child is being bullied they often make up stories like this just to feel more secure. But if parents would take time and seek out the childs thoughts on why they are not feeling well it would help to make sure in time everything will be OK.

When I was a student, I've lied to my parents. But, I lied, not because of a negative. I lied, because I do not want my parents confusion, finding money for school activities. At that time, my school held activities, visiting tourist attractions, and must pay some money. Because, I know, my parents are short of money, I did not tell my parents. I do not follow school activities. I still go to school, although I do not go to school.

I remember one time, when I said my mother, I was ill, just fo not to go to the school, because there was a hard exam I did not studied for, :), I had no reason for not having studied for that exam, just laziness, I have to confess, and yes, I felt very sorry for that, and begin to study, when I went back to school, I had to do the exam, only that it was not the same, everybody else did, this time was harder, and I failed, I never cheat again.

There are very few times that I remember lying to my parents when I was a youngster. In fact, there are no times that I can think of when I lied to both of my parents. Now, after my father passed away, I can think of some times that I did lie to my mother and most of those lies are about where I was when I had my driver's license and when I was in college. I had a boyfriend that was still in high school and lived in another town and during the weekends I would leave my college campus and would go stay with him and I would try to convince my mother that I was still at school in Louisville because I knew that she really didn't approve of my boyfriend.

hi surek, i know of children like those. but i would suggest for every parent to encourage their children to open up. when they come from school, ask them how their day was. be interested and see what their assignments are or anything that was taught to them that day. that way, you will know if they have been to school or not. with regards to money, you need to check the school directly for anything that needs to be paid. ask for the telephone of their teacher and call them once in a while to find out how your child is faring. when you keep checking a child, about school, i guess there is no chance for them to skip school and go to movies. and if, they do it, you have to be fix on what your penalty will be. no excuses for that offense. i will say, grounding at home during weekends and adding more housework.. no tv or anything of that sort. ann

i ever find a student as you tell. One or some of student at the class usually there are at least one student doesn't following study in his/her class. Many consequense cause of its measure. Such as no grade and no doubt the parents will blame the teacher. i think, lie did that student is result of intern factor in that family and of course by its surroundings.

dear sis, Uh uh..this is really bad. No,my kids cannot do this kind of cheating or lying to me. I can always check their school activities anytime so they cannot use this kind of lying to me. Besides, i always tell my kids that lying is not good. I trust my kids, they are naughty and bully somtimes, but not liar.

I think as kids everyone goes through this phase of telling a lie to their parent. Sometimes it is an innocent small lie that harms no one and sometimes it is big lies to cover up for something. And later we all repent for telling those lies. Those kids who get into the habit of telling lies do not repent later.

Hello Surkeha, I am not in favour of telling lie by anyone. Whether a child or a matured. It breaks confidence and faith. For one lie we have to speak 100 lies to justified. So parents who were give money without proper inquiry are doing wrong. It is not good for the future of their children.

What I have learnt from my experience is that, when you are open to your parents during your child hood (school days and college) the trust grows on you in them. So, even if you do a mistake or do something wrong (like bunking class without their knowledge or spending some the money that they gave you to buy books), if you openly say it, they do understand. Remember to be honest at all times.

I have been extremely fortunate that I never needed to deceit my parents. Whenever I asked for money whether it would be for school canteen or for buying stickers they never refused it. They would first ask the need and then they would give me the money. I think 99% children come up with the alibi of not being well in order to skip their school. Parents should pay heed to such pretexts, and they should take some strict steps in case their child keeps repeating it much often.
