9.   SpongeBob's not on this week/the TV is broken/our cable is out.

Unfortunately, most kids are technically smart enough to figure out that this one's not true, no matter how often and how vehemently you tell them that.

In an attempt to have some peace and quiet, you might tell your kids their favorite show was canceled or just isn't on television anymore, that the cable is out, or that the satellite dish is broken.

Then, your little techie will volunteer to fix it, and voila, SpongeBob once again rules the family room!



10.   The stork brought you to us.

"Where do babies come from?" or, even more difficult, "Where did I come from?" is a common question that young, prepubescent children ask their parents.

Parents choose to answer this in a variety of way. The straightforward, honest approach would probably be best, but many parents still rely on folklore and legend to explain this phenomenon to their offspring.

Depending upon the age of the child, he or she probably won't buy the stork metaphor, but I'm sure there are countless other creative and untrue ways to explain the birth process to your child.

This is quite an interesting idea  .........


What lies did your parents tell you  .........  ?????


Or what lies do you tell your children or grandchildren .........   ?????


Should we lie to children in the first place  ........  ?????????



My favourite that my father used was:


"If you do that again I will knock you into the middle of next week"!



I mean how can one even do that  ........  ?

Do you know why you learned to walk at the age of 3 months old?

Nobody wanted to carry you

I dont think we should outright lie to them, its a bad example especially coming from parents.
