Teens hope to get something out of everything they do.
Some will cheat or lie to feel esteemed or to appear perfect at any cost.
They may have been corny at times, but they had recurring themes of honesty and good character.
The most popular form of entertainment for teens today is the Internet.
And as far as stealing, kids steal things because they feel entitled to own them, or for the thrill of getting away with it, or just to fit in with their peers.
Let’s not overlook the way our culture glorifies all forms of dishonesty.
This and social stresses at school are more troubling for kids today than most parents realize.
In fact, the Journal of Adolescent Health recently found that the stress of school keeps 68 percent of students awake at night, with 20 percent of them at least once a week. Dishonesty may seem like a minor issue in comparison to other problems like drug abuse, sexual promiscuity and eating disorders, but it is a vice that parents should never ignore.
Some are untruthful because they fear the consequences from mom or dad for telling the truth.
That sounds more like a fable to me, but it’s a fact that teenagers today seem to be crossing their fingers behind their back more and more. The latest Report Card on the Ethics of American Youth, by the Josephson Institute of Ethics, shows teens are lying more often and more easily than ever.
The report indicates an increase in lying, cheating and stealing among youth since 2006, when the report was first published.
Taking some souvenirs of junk they found in the vacant house — things worth no more than a few dollars — they were putting them in the boy’s vehicle when the Sheriff arrived.
Long story short, the boy was arrested and charged with felony burglary of a building. Make them right the wrong, including confessing to whomever was wronged from the dishonesty, cheating or theft. Enforce appropriate consequences and make sure they know that you will be on the lookout for any form of dishonesty in the future.
