Vertel jij wel een leugentje om eigen bestwil? Deze ouders hebben er een handje vol van. En eerlijk, sommige werken eigenlijk heel goed.
Leugentje om eigen bestwil
Als ouder krijg je je kinderen soms gewoon niet zo ver om bepaalde dingen te doen, als je alleen maar eerlijk bent. Is het erg om hier en daar een klein leugentje te vertellen? Zodat je kinderen bijvoorbeeld wat gezonder eten, even een tijdje rustig zijn, niet volkomen doorslaan of om teleurstelling te voorkomen. We helpen er onszelf in ieder geval wel een handje mee. Lees hier de grappige leugentjes die ouders hun kinderen wijsmaken. Of, waar ze zelf in zijn getrapt.
1. Of gewoon niet de grootste hondenfan
My mom said that we couldn't get a dog because she was allergic. I believed her because she had asthma and allergies. She was lying.

2. Sinds wanneer zijn spinnen zo braaf?
My dad told me once that spiders couldn't get inside cars, and my faith was so strong that I once saw a spider inside the car, stopped, remembered that was impossible, and remained calm. Because it must not have been a spider. Spiders can't get in cars.

3. Nooit meer korstjes weggooien
My mom told us the crusts are the most nutritious part of the bread so she couldn't cut it off sandwiches for us (I think she half believes it herself!) and only Roman Meal brand, of course.

4. Herman, ben jij dat?
My dad told me that in every herd of cows there's always one cow named Herman, so every time we drove by cows we would roll down the windows and yell "HERRRRMAN!" and look for the one who looked up. I was in my teens before I realized this was not an actual thing.

5. Baby don’t cry
My mom told me that there's a finite number of tears I could shed, so a little into my weeping, she would say "Ok, ok, save some for the next time." And I did. Crying without tears just didn't sit right with me even as a toddler.

6. Even wachten met flippen totdat je aan de beurt bent
As a child My mother convinced me that you had to wait your turn to be upset and throw a tantrum. I’d basically “take a number” and she’d send me to wait in my room. After 1/2 an hour she’d inform me it was my turn but I wasn’t mad anymore. What gets me is I believe her!

7. Al die tijd zonder..
My mom still apologizes regularly for trying to convince us that carob was chocolate when we were children

8. Short hair don’t care
my mom convinced me that some girls' hair just didn't grow past their chins because she didn't want to deal with long hair

9. Zeker een fantasierijke vader
When I was very little I asked my dad why some countries have more vowels in their words than others he told me about the great Vowel Wars that ravaged Europe. He made up dates/battles/etc. and I only found out when I did a presentation on it in the first grade.

10. Bespaar je kind verdriet
My parents told me my goldfish ran away to be with his mom and I believed them for years!
— Liz Charboneau (@lizchar) January 23, 2018
When I was a kid and a song I really liked came on the radio my mom would pretend she was driving to the radio station as fast as she could so I could meet the band when the song finished.

12. Want voor je het weet ben je er elk weekend
My aunt and uncle live 20 minutes from Anaheim and the first time they took their three sons to Disneyland they drove 4 hours out of the way so the kids wouldn’t know it was basically in their backyard.

13. Lekker rustig
My mom used to tell me some roads were “quiet roads” and it was illegal for kids to talk while adults drove on them.

14. Als die meneer het zegt is het waar
Mister, they said, do you really have to flap your arms to make the plane take off?
He looked at them, and said, "You mean… you don't??"
Kids went to seats.
I thanked Roy Blount and followed them.

15. Dat moeten een paar geweldige jaren zijn geweest
Oh, and the glorious few years when a different niece thought the Disney store at the mall was Disney World
— aproustian (@aproustian) January 23, 2018
16. Huh, een vader? Bang?
We told my daughter she couldn't have a My Little Pony because her father was terrified of them and would have nightmares.

17. Top, meer quality time!
my parents would take us on vacation, where the house they rented every year for ten years had "a broken TV." they actually just unplugged it straightaway when we arrived. we did not learn the truth until we were both in college.

18. Nu misschien toch een beetje spijt
I have a cousin who’s kids got convinced at a very young age that they love sushi. I really think he goofed on that one. Should have gotten them hooked on oatmeal instead.

19. Hoe je je kind helpt minder suiker te eten
My mom told me that what the rest of the world called "yogurt" was actually "ice cream," and I bought it until I had real ice cream at Kirby Ellis' fifth birthday party, after which my life was never the same.

20. De gouden tip van allemaal!
A friend’s parents told her that tv only worked on Saturday morning until they woke up. Kids were super quiet and peaceful watching hours of cartoons while parents got to sleep in every Saturday for years.
