You hate to do it, but sometimes you have to get a bit creative and lie to your kids. Like Slacker…When he’s at the store with his son Noah and he wants a new toy, he will tell Noah that he is going to get carded if he tries to buy the toy he doesn’t meet the age requirements for.
What lies have you told your children?
I don’t currently have any kids, but when I was a babysitter I would tell lies to the kids all the time just to get them to do what I needed them to do. I can’t remember exactly what lies I told since it was a while back, but it always revolved around watching TV, going to bed, and eating.
