Amazing Lies Parents Tell Their Kids

Truth has its place in parenting.

It’s just not always a very big place.

Let’s face it – there are times when telling the truth to your child might traumatise them. Or you.

Like that time Flea asked me what necrophilia was. Or the time when Flea found a stash of presents in the spare bedroom, and I had to invent a whole new Christmas tradition of giving a bag of gifts on Christmas Eve.

But I’ve decided I’m an amateur in the fibbing stakes compared to some of my fellow bloggers.

Oh yes. I asked some of my favourite bloggers what is the most outrageous fib you’ve ever told your children?

    I think i would draw the line at telling them peppa pig is dead haha
    I once told my daughter that mcdonalds use rats in their burgers…..Strangely she still eats it and now has actually started telling people at school that the schools pet rat would be tasty on a bun.
