    Yep all of these. I try very hard to never make promises I can't keep though so wouldn't say we are doing something when I know we're not.

    Your DS is probably a bit young, but as soon as DD was old enough to understand I would (and still) do the whole "I know you want to go to the park, but we don't always get what we want." I figure she better get used to that concept now since we all know how true it is!

    God yes, I lie to keep the peace.

    DD2 thinks she only likes oats from the yellow packet and everyday she asks "are these the yellow ones" when I put them in front of her. And everyday I say "of course", when in actual fact we haven't had oats in the yellow packet for ages now. If I said no, then she would carry on and refuse to eat.

    No, as others have said, I try to get DD used to being told no. She's generally pretty reasonable, so it hasn't been something I've 'had' to do either.

    I sometimes do creative timekeeping though. My 5 minutes can be 2 or 20, depending on what's involved...

    What happens when he discovers you're not going there? Doesn't that make him more upset?

    My DS would hit the roof at bedtime if I said we were going somewhere and then didn't.
    But I have no qualms with lying. Many toys at our house 'go missing'

    Yep I have done this when DD was little, she was the most stubborn and argumentative toddler (and now child) so if she wanted to go somewhere she would pester and pester so we use to tell her things were shut.

    I'd probably try not to lie, I would want to get them used to being told no and realising that tantrums don't get them what they want. But, if I was going to go completely crazy I might cave and tell a little lie :P

    Yes. Occasionally I do. Ds2 won't sit in his carseat and so the only way I can get him to sit down is to tell him we're going to nanna's house, which isn't always true.

    But he's very strong and I can't get his seatbelt on if hr doesn't sit still.

    I don't feel guilty, 5 mins later he's happy to look out of the car window and has forgotten all about going to his grandmothers house.

    I just though of a lie i told which may horrify some. When DS1 was much younger he became obsessed with wanting soft drink. Every time we went to the shop he would demand it and have tantrums over it but i'm very anti soft drinks, particularly for young children.
    So one day when lined up at the checkout at the supermarket he asked for a bottle of sprite. I told him all about the story i read in the newspaper about the kid who drank sprite, whose stomach exploded as a result. It turned out scientist had discovered soft drinks were not safe for children under 12.

    He didn't ask for soft drink for a very long time after that! So i think, sometimes a little lie here and there is just worth it!
