My child has yet to fine-tune the age old art of lying and it is something I hope she never masters. But it seems that every child, at some point in their lives, lies to their mom and dad about a wide variety of subjects from school to their social life. These lies are being celebrated on Twitter today with the trending topic #LiesIveToldMyParents.
So what are the “kids” lying about these days? We’ve collected ten of the top tweets from the #LiesIveToldMyParents archives and a funny thing about them is that they’re pretty much the same exact lies that were popular when I was young. The times can change but the lies seem to stay the same.
