One of the great things about being a parent, is you can tell your children lies.

This morning, on our way to Church, Mr Grunty & Miss Squeaky saw a yellow-school-bus depot. They excitedly brought it to our attention.
“Yes, that’s a bus farm,” I said.
“Busfarm” Mr Grunty repeated.
“They plant tiny buses in the spring, and look what you get,” I said. Right then a big metro bus went by. “And that one got lots of fertilizer.”

MyBetterHalf scolded me.

So, what do you do when you lie to be nice? For example, I believe that the parents should believe that they are the first ones to see their baby take first steps. But if the child does it at daycare, the parents need to know for safety. I would say, the daycare should say, “Jr is really, really close to walking.” And hopefully that will avert any disasters, but the parents still feel they were the ones to see it first.

What about lies to spare someones feelings? “Oh, Aunt Matilda, I love the liver-bisque!” whilst trying not to vomit.

I don’t know if I’m qualified to teach my childrens under what circumstance they should lie.

Maybe I’ll just lie to them and say, “Honesty is always the best policy.”
