When will kids learn that telling the truth will often get them out of trouble faster and with less consequences than lying??!

Mr. Pinocchio Is Back At It
Mr. Pinocchio is back at his ways - not that the lying ever stopped. Since my last post honoring my gifted (yep...truly labeled AIG) student, the lying hasn't really stopped but I've been trying to give him the benefit of the doubt. His mother doesn't want him to get a bad reputation and doesn't want him blamed for things that he truly didn't do (others are always putting the unwarranted blame on him of course). So of course he didn't tell another student to Suck his p#^!$ so that stuff comes out. Of course he wasn't following a girl around the room. Of course he wasn't saying inappropriate things about his crush. Of course he wasn't talking in line or during silent lunch. Of course he wasn't playing around in the bathroom. Of course! Of course! Of course!
