When my son was still in daycare, he saw an episode of Little Bear that was SUPPOSED to teach honesty and responsibility. Little Bear got into mischief and kept blaming “Mr. Nobody.” Everyone saw through it and eventually he learned to own up.
We received calls from the daycare. Our son was getting into all sorts of trouble and blaming “Mr. Nobody.” Instead of learning the lesson Little Bear learned, he decided, “This bear’s got a great racket going!”
He is 16 and still lies about everything, such as “Did you start your laundry?”
Our 10 year old daughter also brazenly lies.
