I remember now another story which I think is very useful for children to listen and learn from it.

A shepherd decided one day to play games with his co-villagers and started all of a sudden shouting and asking for help saying that a wolf was killing his sheep. Then all the people from the village got armed with guns, and

other tools and run to kill the wolf. When they went there the shepherd laughed saying that it was a joke, no wolf  was there.

After a few days again the shepherd repeated this bad joke and the villagers left the place.

After a few days a wolf appeared and attached his sheep, then the shepherd asked desperately for help, but no one run to help him. Then he realized that his joke was a very bad one and he never said lies again.


The lesson we get out of this fable is that lies are no good. This is taught in the schools not only in Greece and Cyprus, but also in other countries because is a very good example to explain how bad is to tell lies.
