29 of the Funniest Lies People Told to Children
Lying to children is fun. You can say literally anything to them, and they’ll believe it (dummies!). One parent told their kid that every person is only allotted a certain number of words per year, and that if they use them up too early, they won’t be able to talk for the rest of it. First of all, it would be incredible if that were true. Air would smell fresher, water would taste cleaner, society as a whole would repair itself. But secondly, that’s an insanely good lie. I almost believed it myself. Other Redditors chimed in with the best lies they told to their kids, and they’re each a beautiful reminder that good parenting is alive and well.
