Parents: Tell Your Children the Truth

January 5, 2013

First off, I don’t like practical jokes, and this was an example of it, and get this into your brain: there is nothing “practical” about them at all. And raising my children, I cannot remember even once ever lying to them. I told them plainly all along there was no Santa Claus.

Fox and Friends‘ panel this morning (January 5, 2013) discussed the video of a mother doing a practical joke on her son.

Dr. Susan Lipkins said that the parent should not have punked her child, and there is Dr. Robert Epstein who says it’s okay because from his studies with thousands of families, the most important factor is an environment of big love and affection for the children.

She was interviewed on Fox and Friends Saturday about the viral video of that Mom who did this with her child. For context, she wrote a book condemning practices of bullying and hazing among groups of kids, at schools and in other contexts.

First, emphasize this, it is true that loving your kids, spending time with them, having fun with them, is the most important factor in raising your children. Some parents are better at this than others.

I think the mother is targeted too harshly though by some, as this is good gossip fodder for busybodies who like to criticize others and jump in against them. Not that I would count Ms. Lipkin among them. She was asked her opinion, and used the occasion to give it. Of course. As did the other psychiatrist they had on.

But in one brief moment during the interview it was mentioned that another thing that Lipkins says is that parents should never lie to their kids. Yay!

This is something I always have said, and of course that applies to Santa Claus and other such myths. When the name came up, I always told my kids there was no Santa Claus.

I sat behind one of our my oldest two boys on a bus trip once, and there was a girl who was in a seat next to him asked him what Santa Claus had brought him, because it was just after Christmas. He replied that there was no Santa Claus. I was delighted to hear this. Then she echoed the the meme they push every Christmas season, saying he represents a spirit of the season, or something like that. I was compelled to come in at that point: “Yeah, the wrong one”.

Think about the trauma of kids that spend the first few years of their awareness of life being told something by their parents that they later find out –likely from peers about their own age at school– that there is no Santa Claus. When they go back and ask their parents, the parents confess up, although some of them argue about it because some pop psychologist that they have seen on Pop Media have told them it’s good for the kid to believe the myth.

So they go on telling the kids a lie and finally the gig is up anyway.

For we can do nothing against the truth, but for the truth. – 2 Corinthians 13:8

If you know a  young woman (or not so young) considering induced abortion, let her know she can put the baby up for adoption to one of the thousands of couples on waiting lists and so still have “her” life, and bless the baby and bless two loving parents who would like to have a child, and avoid the emotional wounds and pain and regrets and the increased health risks for an artificially induced termination:

Tell Stan to have ready this for the co-worker to pass on to this niece in case of remorse, which happens frequently:

It is a web site put up by women and for the tens of thousands of women who repented of their abortions, and plead with those considering induced abortion to reconsider for their own sake, as well as for the sake of the baby in the womb.

The web site links to the horrifying experience of Julia Holcomb, who was coerced into a saline abortion at 17, result of a dalliance with the Aerosmith lead singer.

If the champions of “choice” and “women’s reproductive rights” and “sexploitation” would demand an end to the force abortions in China and would work harder to expose the cases of heavy-hand of male pressure on women to terminate their babies’ growth inside, they would leave themselves less exposed to the obvious charge of hypocrisy and false flag ideology. They assault women’s rights every time.

Pictures of babies in the womb here (a rose by any other name):

The baby has a heartbeat at only 18 days from conception.

The feminist case against abortion:


More, four stories that represent tens of thousands of others across the country, just among pro-life activists, who are adoptees that were conceived in a rape:

One is Laura Tedder, whose biological mother made several attempts to abort her and who suffered from birth as a result from a form of cancer that lost her one eye, plus a number of surgeries and treatments. The birth mother dropped her off at two days old at her brother’s house, who adopted her, and she said this:

When Laura was able to speak with her birth mother years later, she told her, “I’m just calling to thank you so much for giving me to your brother. What a wonderful life I’ve had! I just want to thank you so much for giving me life; God bless you!” Though Laura’s birth mother has repeatedly rejected her efforts at reconciliation, Laura said in her online testimony, “I have forgiven her and harbor no resentment. Any people in similar circumstances with a parent should let go of their resentment sooner so they can reconcile before it is too late.”

Nobody, absolutely nobody, has been able to tell me what is different about a baby that is two inches apart from point A to point B where killing it at point B is killing a baby and at point A it is a “choice”.


Open letters from women who have had abortions and want to encourage other women who are pregnant:

The link between abortion and breast cancer has been shown in several medical studies:

“MasterCare International an international group of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists was presented with the evidence of the link between abortion and breast cancer at its international conference in Rome in October 2004 by Dr Joel Brind’s research group.  The medical explanation and the epidemiological evidence convinced our  group that there is a significant increase in breast cancer risk after induced abortion, especially before the first full term pregnancy.  This evidence has been denied by the U.S. National Cancer Institute (NCI) and other researchers.  Recently ten studies have been published in an attempt to discredit Brind’s conclusion.

“In turn Brind has examined these ten studies and in a peer reviewed paper published in the Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons (Vol 10, No 4, Winter 2005, <>) he  has shown that they have serious methodological weaknesses and flaws and therefore do not invalidate the conclusion that there is a increased risk of breast cancer.

“Women have a basic right to know of this increased risk of breast cancer and it is unacceptable that the information should be denied to them by the medical and cancer research  establishments. MaterCare International as an organization of women’s health specialists  recognizes its responsibilities in this matter and will do all it can to publish this evidence.”
