My 9 year old is an outstanding student at her class. Usually she aces all the exams and never had any problem with her assignments or tests. Last year she was accepted to a prestigious math programme, at a college. She liked it very much. This year, the same college called her to try out for their science program but she was rejected as she did not pass. She is an extremely sensitive girl, and although popular, loved by friends and teachers – she has insecurity issues and tends to over critique herself. Should I tell her she has been rejected? The thought does not even cross her mind. I can hide this from her, and make an excuse that we cannot send her to this programme. Or – should I tell her the truth and cope with this. Although I know it will hurt her deeply.

But after going through your question, the first thing that comes to my mind and I’d like to tell you is that do not think of hiding this …

Hi, further to your article on building trust, I wanted to know if it is really practical that somebody who has broken someone’s trust will admit it and are the relations strong now-a-days that somebody actually does it. I don’t want the one who has broken my trust to say sorry or admit his/her mistake. I want my relations with him/her to be so trustworthy that the person can freely tell me about the fact and make me understand the situation.

Coming upon the first point; of admitting after breaking someone’s trust; here all I can say is, that it solely depends on that person whether he/she wants to come ahead and confess it or not. That again depends on the ideology and the viewpoint of that person. Someone who is really truthful with his conscience …
