Make an official Family Cheating Exposé Project to help kids understand the real consequences of cheating, so they understand that no one gets away with it—not even the rich and famous. Pick a few notorious cases from history like the Teapot Dome Scandal,Watergate, and the recent Enron corporation scandal. Read the newspaper to your kid whenever there's a case of corporate, sport, or governmental cheating. Discuss the criminality, the ruined lives, the long-term impact on policies and public trust.Watch a movie like Catch Me If You Can or All the President's Men, and use it as an opportunity to show how cheating hurts both the victims and the perpetrators. Kids need to know that even sports stars, movie stars, U.S. presidents, CEOs, and archbishops have to pay the penalty for cheating.
