Listen, my kids FULLY believe Santa Claus is real and that a tiny fairy steals their lost teeth away when they’re sleeping. Are those things true? Nope. But I’m OK with that. Parents lie all the time. The little white lies parents tell their kids are basically harmless. Some of them are even super beneficial to parents! Dan Walker, a BBC presenter, asked his Twitter followers about some of the lies parents tell their kids. And good lord, did these parents ever deliver.

I feel like “Lies Parents Tell Their Kids” is a tv show waiting to happen.

I use this one. Only we’re a tech family, so it’s actually a camera that broadcasts their every move to the North Pole. Winning!

We’re guessing mummy didn’t find it as amusing.
