Honesty-The Lie Monster (Family Home Evening Lesson/Sharing Time)
We were having a little trouble with our children not being honest with us. We
addressed it during FHE. We talked about how it was so important to always be
honest because if we aren't, it is hard to believe you when you are. We then let
the kids play out "The Boy Who Called Wolf". Everyone got a chance to be the boy
and everyone got a chance to be the towns people. They also got the chance to
say, "Because you weren't honest with us before, we don't believe you and won't
get fooled again." It was pretty powerful for our children. Having them act it
out was much better for them than just telling the story would have been.
