Children, in my opinion, should be treated as blank pieces of paper since their emotions are so delicate. Any word or deed can harm them and haunt them forever. But it doesn’t imply we should tell them lies; instead, we should tell them the truth while speaking as subtly as we can rather than as honestly as we can. Furthermore, we should be honest with children, but do it gradually, rather than telling them untruths or lies about life. I think we can all agree that we were once children who believed what our parents said and felt pain when they couldn’t or weren’t telling the truth.
In the tale “Gorrila, My Love,” the character of Hunca Bubba tells Hazel that she is “the cutest thing that ever walked the earth” and that he will marry her when she gets older then he decided marry someone else. That saddens Hazel so much that she knows for certain that children “must stick together or be forever lost” because grown-ups cannot be trusted. This anecdote serves as a reminder of the lasting impact that psychology will have on Hazel’s life. Children who experience psychological trauma when they are young will suffer serious repercussions in the future. Therefore, instead of shielding kids with truthful lies, gently inform them of the truth.
