Is it easier to lie than to tell the truth?
Honestly, I try not to lie to my children. If they ask me questions about certain topics or why I did this and that, I do my best to be as straight forward with them as possible, even if the truth is going to sting just a little. I guess one reason why I do this is because I was a horrible liar as a child and I feel that if I tell my kids the truth, hopefully they’ll be honest with me in return. That’s not to say that we are going to go through our lives without lying to one another here and there, but by me being open with them, I’m hoping they’ll do the same with me, especially during their teenage and adult years.
Many parents are sharing their confessions on the anonymous secret sharing app Whisper and the result is quite surprising, too. A lot of the lies have been told in order to protect their children from the real truth in order to avoid awkward conversations or complicated explanations. As a parent, some of these I completely understand while others I’m not so sure about! You’ve got to read some of these.
