6 Lies Every Parent Should Tell to Their Kids
Sometimes, in life, white lies just have to be made use of. And sad as it might sound, as a parent you should tell your kids certain lies even though you teach them to be completely honest.
1. “Santa is real”
This is one lie you definitely should tell your kids! For this will make them believe in all things magical, and you can always use Santa to make them behave. When he finds out the truth, he would be able to look back with fond memories.
2. “You are going to be the President some day”
Let’s face it! Not everyone can be the President, and yet almost every parent tells this lie to their kids and they should. Even though it is a lie, it holds in it immense power as it sends out the message that you love them greatly and have full faith in them. You believe in them to make the world a better place to live in.
3. “If you won’t eat your vegetables, you will end up homeless”
Sometimes, you have to lie because you cannot do anything else to get your loved ones to do something that lies in the absolute white area of being the right thing to do. You want your kids to eat healthy? Lie!
