Lies Parents Tell Their Children
No! Say it isn’t so! Parents lie to their kids? Yes, but the lies are little lies. A new study shows parents tell lies to keep their children safe and healthy. The top lies?
“Broccoli makes you taller.” Hey wait a minute! My mom said that and I am tall. Surely she wasn’t telling me a fib!
Other common lies are:
“There’s no more candy in the house.”
“We can come back and buy you that toy next time.”
“If you don’t be quiet, that lady over there will get mad at you!”
“I didn’t bring any money with me”….Yep, I’ve heard that one!
“If you don’t follow me, a kidnapper will come and grab you.” Oh, that’s just mean!
What are some little lies you tell your kids to get them to eat right or to behave?
