10 Things Every Parent Lies About

The pressures of parenting are real. If you’re not constantly asking “am I messing this thing up?” — are you even parenting? As much as we try to be on the right track, sometimes we eff up and that’s okay. But, everyone doesn’t always need to know that. Whether it’s a fib about all the greens your kiddo eats to how well-behaved he or she is come bedtime, we’ve rounded up the top things we’re sure you’ve heard a parent spew out. Maybe that parent has even been you? We get it. A little white lie never hurt anyone.

 

1. Screen time

“Screen time? Little Grayson has yet to ever even see a screen. Nope, she’s never binged on three hours worth of Doc McStuffins (averts eyes).”

 

2. Feeding your kids junk food

“Oh what? Your kid doesn’t eat an entirely homemade, non-GMO, gluten-free, organic dinner every night? Shame.”

3. Padding his or her language abilities

“My four-year-old is already fluent in Mandarin, Spanish, and French. We’re working on his Japanese skills and he’s already showing great progress.”

 

4. The bedtime battle

“My kid is fed, bathed, read to, and asleep by 7:30 p.m. — without a fight. In fact, he puts himself to bed. It’s amazing.”

 

5. Sleeping through the night

“We’re so lucky — our little one has been sleeping through the night since she was four weeks old! I feel SO well-rested — I even have time for yoga in the morning because she sleeps in until 8 a.m. How’s your little one sleeping?”

 

6. Picky Eating

“My kid will eat ANYTHING. Rainbow kale, chard, duck confit, uni. You name it!”

7. Co-Sleeping

“Nope. We’ve never shared a bed.”

 

8. Potty Training

Our kid just walked up to the potty, went, and boom — been potty trained since. It was a breeze.”
