Parents lie to kids all the time. It's not a pleasant truth, but you know it's true. Your parents lied to you sometimes. You have, will, or would lie to your kids too. "Santa Claus is watching you." "Peas taste good." "Babies come from a stork." "We were wrestling."
Mostly, these are white lies, and white lies can lead to some really strange places. So, naturally, there were some seriously entertaining responses when the BBC's Dan Walker asked for examples of the white lies parents have told to their kids.
