Lie Detection

Gasp! Imagine how shocked we were when we came across this article. According to the article, a recent study found that 8 out of 10 teens lie to their parents about important things. And to think, we actually believed our kids when they said the dog ate their homework. Gina, especially, fell for that. “That Candy. I’m gonna kill her. First, she ate my flatiron and now your science fair project.”

Are we the only ones blown away by this shocking study?

    Since my twelve year old came in and asked me with a very well rehearsed speech if he could skype with this boy that “used to live here but moved away a year ago” (that he actually met in his gaming chat room) No, this does not surprise me in the least!! We had a very long conversation about what could possibly be the pedophile next door, and then he no longer wanted to Skpe with his new friend from South Dakota who’s name he could not remember.

    My mother used to make all five of us kids stick our tongues out to reveal the liar’s blacken tongue. I used to sweat bullets when I was the one who, for example, ate all the marshmellows out of the Lucky Charms.

    I felt a little guilty when I employed the same tongue method to my own pack of excellent liars. It cracks me up to see the guilty party nervously roll their eyes down for the impossible task of checking out their tongue.
