Be straight with us, parents…
You lie to your kids, right?
I knew it!
Well, now that the cat’s out of the bag, enjoy these funny tweets from parents about the lies they tell their kiddos.
You’re gonna love these!
1. That’s a good one!
I’m glad this works.
My friend tells her kids that her engine won’t start until her car hears their seatbelts go click and now I’m curious what other cute lies parents tell.

2. Parenting can be fun.
Yesterday I convinced my 6 year old son I could see his memories by looking into his ear directly at brain.
He was amazed talking about, “What else do you see mama?!” as I told him things we were both there for.
Parenting is fun

3. Yes, you are.
But you still have to say this.
I’m pretty sure “ I’m not gonna say it again” is the biggest lie I tell my children.

4. This is good!
I’m very impressed.
If my son wants to watch one of his annoying shows that I’m not in the mood to tolerate I tell him that the main character is taking a nap. Works for now (he’s 4)!

5. Sorry, all out!
Better luck next time.
Heard another parent tell their kid that when the ice cream truck plays its jingle
it means they’ve sold out of ice cream. Using that now.

6. Sharing is caring.
Feel free to use this one.
I convinced my kids that Daylight Savings means we go to bed early so we can save some daylight for the rest of the world. Sharing is caring y’all.

7. I still believe this.
Is that weird?
Lies I tell my children when traveling: the pilot checks to make sure each passenger has used the bathroom before boarding.

8. Wouldn’t that be nice?
How silly we used to be…
“When YOU’RE an adult you can do what YOU want.”

9. Keeps backfiring on you.
But you gotta keep this going.
Two months until Christmas and I’m already running out of lies to tell my kids about the Amazon packages showing up
Kids: ooh! What is it?
Me: I think daddy ordered a tool for his deck project…BORING lol
[Husband walks in] what’s up?
Me: Not much, I need you to build a deck

10. That’s good!
Parenting 101 right here.
I got tired of waiting for the toaster, so I convinced my kids to eat something called “cold toast.”
It’s now their favorite breakfast food.
I’ve peaked as a parent.

11. Just call mommy.
I bet she was pi**ed.
Daddy cannot hear when it is dark. Call mummy if you wake up at night.
Actually worked till my wife found out.

12. She bought it!
Just convinced my 3-year-old daughter that hummus is princess food. #lying #parenting
