"IS Telling the Truth Good or Bad"
Great question and a question l find very difficult to answer .
My first feelings when l read your question was the children . If a three year old girl , any girl , asked an adult, " What is rape and Murder ? " the truth in the answer would have to be altered because of the sensitive nature of the question and ofcourse you might ask " Why do you ask that question ? "
But honestly l feel the question is not valid because it doesn't fit in the possible answers . The question could ask " What age should truth be administered to a child ?
No one can convince me ,after thirteen years of owning a Lic. Daycare with my daughter, that it is correct to tell a child every answer to every question pertaining to adult categories because l would be put in Jail if l told a Daycare child what rape is because he\she asked me .We talk around it and avoid it and pass it on to the parents but even if my own little child asked me about Brutal Rape because of something seen on TV l would not explain that to my own very young child .
As you all stated it surely depends on the circumstances.
