Raising kids is no easy task, and your whole life turns upside down at least until your tiny human turns eighteen and is capable of dealing with responsibilities himself. Before he or she does, you, as a parent, are responsible that your cute kid turns out to be a good member of society and a wise human being. Now, we are not going to tell you exactly how parenthood works, but we can share a little secret - if necessity is the mother of invention, then lies are invention's older sibling. How do you get your kids to behave? How do you get them to eat vegetables? When reason fails, necessity provides a solution: white lies.
Of course, we are not advocating keeping the truth from your kids, as the little lies that we've compiled below are more like embellished truth, conveyed in an easily understandable way. And though sometimes these lies are means of convincing your funny kid into doing something he'd rather not, in other cases these parenting examples are just testing the little one's sense of humor.
