Okay, so one thing that bothers me about some kids shows is the way they convey the message of always telling the truth.
Now, granted, I agree it's an important lesson to teach kids, and that lying about something shouldn't be what they do when they know their parents or somebody else is going to be angry at them for what they do . . . it's the way they usually go about presenting this message that rubs me the wrong way. More often than not, they make it seem like as long as you tell the truth from the start, you'll never get in trouble for it like you will if you lie, which is not how the real world works. All of our actions have some kind of a consequence, and telling the truth isn't like some magical potion that makes all things right again like these kids shows make them out to be: even if you tell the truth about something wrong you've done, your parents or whoever are still going to be angry at you, and you're still going to face some kind of punishment for your actions - these kids shows make it seem like all of that is totally and completely forgiven as long as you tell the truth, which is not the case whatsoever.
