Parents Online Reveal 37 Little Lies They Tell Their Kids That They’re Considering Parenting Hacks


While it’s easy to judge parents for all of the wrongs they do when it comes to making their kids behave, it’s once you become a parent yourself that you understand that there’s a spectrum of what’s actually wrong and what’s still kinda sorta OK because otherwise you’d crack under the pressure of parenting.


One of the many things that most parents resort to, though still with a certain degree of caution, is white lies, which are, if anything, cute and kind of a long-term investment that will end in laughs in the future.

A tweeter by the handle of @Lhlodder shared one such lie that her friend uses to make her kids buckle up for the car ride, saying that the car won’t start unless they are all wearing seat belts. This inspired others to share their white lies, whether they're the ones duping or the ones who were duped.
