Child: There is a green coin under this door.
Me: How do you know?
Child: I cheated.
Me: It is tempting to peek.
Child: (Shakes his head "yes")
Me: Not cheating is called honesty.
Me: Here is the cool thing--you can get better at honesty as you get older.
Me: I think it was honest that you told me you cheated. Honesty is also telling the truth. You are already getting better at honesty.
