Lying in any form is wrong. But at some point or another, let’s admit that as parents, we have told our kids white lies just to get them to do or avoid doing something.
Parents can tell white lies just to preserve a child’s innocence or give you some personal time. Many times, these white lies are used to get kids to behave, making parenting a bit easier.
