What are some lies your parents told you?
I don’t actually recall anything that my parents have lied to me about. They were actually quite up-front about most things, and if I asked them a question, they would tell me the truth, rather than continue to feed me the same bullshit that all the other parents were feeding their kids.
There are a couple of things that certainly stand out though:
‘Why don’t you go spend time with your father up in the shed, you’ll both really enjoy that.’
‘You and I area going to go fishing tomorrow morning. How do you know you won’t like it? You’ll love it!! It’ll be fun, we can make a game out of it…’
‘Your father loves both of you equally as much!’
‘You know that we don’t have favourites!’
‘DON’T SAY THAT TO YOUR BROTHER!! OF COURSE SANTA / EASTER BUNNY / TOOTH FAIRY ARE REAL!!’
‘No, of course your grandmother doesn’t hate you. How could she hate you? I think you’re just tired and your overracting. You should just go to bed and get some sleep.’
Even. more. lies.
