We all know good parenting is built on a solid foundation of white lies. Mainly because they help preserve our children’s sense of wide-eyed wonder until they’re old enough to figure us out.
And if we’re being totally honest, lies makes our lives as parents easier. Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy, Target randomly running out of all the toys – it’s really all about stretching the truth and giving out information on a need-to-know basis.
We’re not alone either.
Kids are dyed-in-the-wool tall-tale-tellers, and can spin some amazing stories, especially as they learn the difference between fact and fiction, and how best to get out of being grounded.
Netflix gets it, and has some great picks to inspire honesty in young and old alike.
