9 little white lies all parents tell their kids at least once
A list of the most common white lies that parents tell their kids
At a young age we're taught that lying is bad. Lying is something that will get us in trouble and we should never do it. As we grow older, we start to see that certain types of lies are a little more accepted than we were once taught. As parents, we learn that a white lie can be a useful resource. Whether we use them to discipline our children, or to impart some positive ideologies, the white lie is a big part of parenting.
Here are nine of the most common little white lies we tell our kids:
Sometimes mummy and daddy need a little bit of private time. NO KIDS ALLOWED!
You don’t want to end up like Pinocchio, do you?
Don’t worry, kiddo, that’s a good look for you!
Spot is okay, honey. He just went to live out his days on a great big farm.
Playstation 4? Nope—you’re getting coal!
Not quite. Some hard work and discipline are needed.
Winning isn’t everything. But it sure is better than losing!
When a mummy and daddy love each other very much…they call the stork.
Life is short but you should make the most of it because time will fly by.
