Early in life, it's things like... "No, Daddy's not going anywhere, Daddy's just taking a shower..." while Daddy really is going out and it's baby's time to nap.
As the kids grow, the lies that begin in babyhood get more complicated.
From replacing the dead pet, to more sophisticated lies as your kids become teens.
But is lying really better than letting them learn to understand (and hopefully accept) the truth?
If they ever find out that you've been lying to them (the bigger lies, not the lies you tell when they were babies), wouldn't it create a bigger issue? What if they stop believing in anything you say?
Your thought on this?
My own father lied quite a bit when I was growing up, even up to the unnecessary things. He would only say what he thought I'd like to hear and skip the rest, sometimes skipping the important bit or even changing them, just so that I'd be "happy" to hear them.
Well, it didn't make me angry or disappointed, but in the end I just stopped taking his words seriously and I always cross-checked his stories/answers with other people, just to get the facts or the correct information.
