Parents are always telling their children not to lie, so parents always tell the truth, right? Wrong!
Sometimes parents tell a little white lie to get kids to behave. Sometimes they tell a whopper for other reasons. Here are some of the best lies parents have told.
Leafy Green Lies
My mother told me that spinach would make me strong like popeye and if i ate it i could lift the house. I would have a few spoonfuls and then she’d rush outside with me and i’d try and lift the house, squeezing my eyes shut with the effort. She’d go “It moved! It moved! Quick, eat some more!” and i’d run back inside and finish it off.
My dad said if I could look after a special growing rock, and watered it each day until it stopped growing I could get a dog. I’d water it and every week, while I was at school he’d replace it with a slightly bigger rock.
