It’s Time to Expose #TheLiesWeTellKids

Trust is hard to build and even harder to restore. Yet, that didn’t stop mom and dad from taking advantage of our innocence. Our parents lied to us  as kids about anything from El Cucuy to human anatomy. If you can’t trust your parents, who can you trust? Here are some of #TheLiesWeTellKids we still remember.

Our parents lied when it was clear we knew the truth.

They lied and used fear as an essential tool to raise us.

But actions always speak louder than words.

Isn’t lying about God a mortal sin?

And how dumb did they really think we were?

In turn, we learned how to lie from our parents.

Some lies were meant to build us up.

Most of the time they lied to keep us busy.

When all else failed, they lied big and they lied boldly.
