The Top 5 Lies Parents Told

Parents are the most awesome people we know since the day we born till the day we die. Because they know every single bit about us and know what’s best for us at all times. According to a survey, parents tell their children white (harmless) lies to protect them from harm, or to make their kids happy or to protect their child’s innocence. But some lies are just told to get themselves (parents) from getting into certain difficulties. So, I hereby present you the top 5 lies they told!

5. Eat your vegetables, if you want to be big and strong like Popeye. This lie has been told to almost every kid. Parents tell all sorts of stories and mumbo jumbos to get their kids to eat vegetables, fruits and nutritious stuff that kids do not want to eat due to their taste. The most common and classic statement was and still is about eating spinach (or other vegetable), if you don’t eat it you are never going to be strong and big.

4. I know everythingAfter a parent says the above mentioned line to their kids, it results in two of the possible ways. One is that the kid would think of his/her parent as a “Super Hero”, who knows and can do everything more precisely anything, which would eventually make him/her proud. Whereas the other reaction which can take place is that he will start to think of his parent as a weirdo or something because he will have the image that his parent is a sore loser because a single person can’t know everything. Well the child cannot be blamed if his maturity is limited.

3. When we were kids, we had often been told of various characters at various occasions in our lives. Those characters were introduced to us by our parents as a fun fact may be or to make our childhood a bit dreamy or something. The most common characters were Santa Clause, Tooth fairy, Sand Man etc. which came along with their own “Legends”, such as Santa clause brings gifts to the children on Christmas, tooth fairy takes your 1st baby teeth and leave some money, and sandman puts sand in the eyes of children so they could sleep. These stories were really fascinating at the appropriate age. But when one comes to know about the reality it kind of sucks. But there are good memories worth remembering. So this lie cannot be considered as a lie.

2. “if you tell me the truth, you won’t get in trouble”. Little do the innocent kids know about not getting into trouble, but they do, and the punishment depends upon how much trouble the child has caused. Almost every parent has told this lie to their child. And yes, may be telling the truth will get them in less trouble than they already are in. But they are still getting in trouble, no matter what. When kids get old enough to realize this lie / figure this whole trap out, they become pretty good liars themselves.

1. When I was your age I had to walk 7 miles to get to school. Like….. seriously?

so, that’s all. bubye!
