So..... I lied to my daughter today.
I know, I know....... Gasp.
I told her that McDonald's was closed until tomorrow. ~ She is now telling the neighbours that they ran out of french fries.
Which got me thinking....
I did some research and this was what I found.
According to a recent study:
"The average parent will tell their child almost 3,000 little white lies as they're growing up - just to get their own way."
"Eight in 10 parents said they often told little white lies to their kids to protect them from the truth, whilst 46 per cent made lies up if they didn't know the real answer to a question."
"Interestingly, the majority of parents polled agreed their children pretty much stopped believing everything they were told by their eighth birthday."
Here are my fav top five:
- If you punch daddy in the crotch, he will give you candy.
- When the ice cream truck chimes that means they're sold out.
- Disneyland burned down
- It's bad luck to name every ant you see
- "Drinking water protects you from the monsters."
Do you have a funny white lie you want to share?
