Another form of lying, which is extremely bad for the young, is to threaten punishments you do not mean to indict. Dr. Ballard, in his most interesting book on The Changing School(note: Hodder and Stoughton, 1925), has stated this principle rather emphatically :
"Don't threaten. If you do, let nothing stop you from carrying out your threat. If you say to a boy, 'Do that again and I'll murder you,' and he does it again, then you must murder him. If you don't, he will lose all respect for you" (p. 112).
