Do you lie to your parents?

I can't tell a lie to my parents. My principle is that my parents are always right and perfect and should know everything about me, since I am nobody without them. I am grateful they have born me and showed the world. So for me, they deserve the truth from everything I do. I actually can't remember an instance I tell a lie to them because my conscience simply can't take it. How about you? Do you, or have you told a lie to your parents?

It's really hard not to lie at all. My parents is not the greatest parents at all in this world but they are honest enough to treat their children right. I also have to admit that I lied many times over to my parents about some things that i don't want them to know. Lying is hard to control. But I only lie sometimes not frequently. Not over some serious matter just moderate and light lies or what the other calls white lies. I think all people always do this. Telling white lies with their parents or love ones.

When I was very little I did use to lie, although my parents never tolerated me doing it and so I tended to grow out of doing it as I didn't really like the feeling of my parents not talking to me or feeling ashamed of me. In my teens, I started being open about my mistakes and I found it very rewards, if i did something wrong and was caught out I would face the tune by owning up to it. I haven't lied for a long time and I don't see the point now, it's like any bad habit once you break it you don't seem to do it as often or at all. Like biting your nails, I used to do that too.

I am sorry to say that i did lie to my parents. I know how bad it is but sometimes lying can simplify things you don't want or unable to explain to them. But i do believe that if we don't lie, good things will happen. So i do try being honest everytime i can.

I will try to spare their feelings if I can so if not telling the whole truth is warranted then I will do it.

Honestly, yes I have lied to my parents numerous times. Most of the times that I needed to lie to them was whenever I am going out with my friends. They seldom allow me unless they know the people that I am going out with. But I really can't blame them if they are so over protective of me since I am the youngest. But I would make up for those lies by doing errands for them because at some point I also feel guilty that I need to lie just for the sake of going out. But now I don't do that anymore. lol!

Yes, I lie to my parents. I think it's just normal now. You are such a good daughter! You didn't really lie to them ever? When I was a kid, I couldn't tell a lie too. Whenever I lie, I end up telling them the truth. But now, I can lie to them.

Yup.. Sometimes.I have lied to them cos it just needs to be done to get away from a lot of things. Sometimes I lied cos they didn't understand my side of point. They were pretty stubborn. So had to lie to get my way. I cannot agree that they are always right. They might have a point of view, but they are not always right. bourne

I used to tell a lie with my parents when I was young so that i could go out and have fun with my friends, my allowance also was not enough for me to buy stuffs that I want so sometimes I tell them a lie that i need to buy this one or we have a contributions in our school. I was so stupid that time because all I care was myself and I dont know that my parents are working hard to earn money and I just wasted it. Now I am paying those mistakes that I made, it is true that time will come you will pay for all the mistakes that you had done with your parents. Though my situation is very hard, I still work hard fro them because I know that they also sacrifices everything for me.

I can't agree with you,friend.That lie is not good is known to everybody.But sometimes things may be different.For example,when you have small trouble you can handle yourself.But when you tell this to your parents,they will be worried about you!But there is no need for them to know this. Actually,I can feel you are a good child to your parents.But I think we should make trouble to our parents as less as possible.

yes. I always do. I do white lie or a big bad lie. I do this so that my parents would not feel bad and this would make me get out of trouble as well. I was lying in a right way... hnahahaha...

Hmmm. I'll be lying if I'll say that I haven't lied to parents, not even once.:D My lies are more of like excuses or reasons for me not to something I don't want to.:D But most of the times I tell my parents the truth like where I'm going, what I'm doing,etc. If it's really serious matters, I tell them everything.

I believe we all love our parents, because they are one who brought us in this beautiful world. I believe that wherever I am standing and what ever I am till date are just because of my parents. I believe if we live with our parents as treating them as friend our life could get very simple and more beautiful. I also believe that parents are not any less than a god.

I have lied to my parents to avoid unnecessary and bad events. Sometimes i lie because it seems for the best but i do inform my parents about all the things i do.
