When I began my first appointment as a school administrator, I quickly found that a large part of my job was dealing with disciplinary issues that arose during the day. As a result, I dealt with students who tried to lie to get out of deserved consequences for inappropriate behavior. In addition, I found that I also dealt with a small number of parents who, in their effort to protect their children, would also bend the truth in an effort to get them out of trouble. Some parents truly believed their children, despite the mountain of evidence against them. Their children truly resided within the parent’s personal blind spot. Other parents actually out and out lied to me.
