TRUTH # 23 - Children are remarkably honest creatures until we teach them not to be.
Yes, children are born into this world without filters especially when it comes to honesty. As they grow up they learn how to cover the truth by using tact. Being truthful in many situations we are told hurts people's feelings and so honesty is pushed aside for something a little more humane, thus we witness the birth of lies! Children learn to lie for many reasons until all those reasons blend into one. As we become adults, some of us forget how or when to tell the truth because using "tact" is easier. But for a child the truth is always right there in the forefront waiting to be verbalized without hesitation or malice.
