Now that i’m older I realize that my parents told me a bunch of little white lies when I was a kid. Like telling me the park was going to close soon so we had to leave or that they’ll know when i’m lying because they can read minds. (That was kind of a big lie because I really thought my parents were mind-readers till I was about 15-years-old).
I’m sure every parent has told a few little lies and a new survey found the 5 most common white lies parents tell their kids:
‘Losing’ an annoying toy or claiming it was broken
Lying to your friends about your parenting style.
Saying you need to leave somewhere such as the park because it’s shutting down (MY MOM DID THIS TO ME ALL THE TIME!!)
Pretending it wasn’t you who ate their chocolate/food
Pretending to call the police because they did something bad
