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.
Apparently 9 out of 10 parents say 'white lies' are the secret to a happy life. What are the fibs you've told your children? #PetHeaven

My son and I spent 10 minutes looking for his chocolate coins when I knew all along I’d eaten them the day before 😳
