Sealed adoption records, secrets, and lies keep me from knowing my siblings and them from knowing I exist. My biological parents have a right to their privacy, meaning if they don't want a relationship with me fine, but NOT the right to lie to their children about my existence and request to know them!
Investigating into how parents lie to children and what the most commonly told lies are. It would appear that children are lied to very frequently, although they might only be considered white lies children will more often than not openly believe what their parents say. Common lies and myths include, The tooth fairy, Santa Clause, carrots will make you see in the dark etc...
"Inner peace is being able to rest at night knowing you haven’t used or taken advantage of anyone to get to where you are in life. Lies run sprints, but the truth runs marathons. Run a marathon. Live so that when others think of fairness, integrity and reliability, they think of you."
When a HC parent can't win in court, they turn the kids into weapons against the other parent. Feeding them lies about the other parent and step parent in hopes that the kids won't want to be with the other parent. This is child abuse. Don't be that parent.
