    But sometimes I just tell my kids no. And that's OK as well.

    Sometimes I lie and tell them I'm not feeling well when I cbf playing with them anymore. Or I tell them I'm tired if I want to just lie down for 5 minutes and not be bothered. Better than me telling them that I've had enough of their company and just want to be alone.
    I also had 3 kids in under 4 years,so I get the busyness & not wanting to always explain. I still choose not to lie to my kids - just because that is MY choice &my personality - lying is really unnnatural for me. I have no issue with others who choose to - like my example with the icecream truck earlier, I'm sure the kids will have a laugh about it when theyre older. But its just not for me.

    You are kidding right? Shouldn't you lead by example? How are u showing respect for others beliefs by jumping on a public forum when u know your comment will offend others in this thread and saying it anyway? You are entitled to your opinion and own beliefs but practice what u preach, otherwise you just look like a hypocrite.

    You could say the same to everyone. My kids aren't going to be reading this, I'm sure most of you are adults. Maybe if you are going to be so offended by me saying god isn't real, you shouldn't be on the Internet. Oh no. Watch out. Someone doesn't believe in god and openly says he isn't real the horror. ....

    Have you ever lied in your life?

    Would you swear here on the bible and say you've never ever lied?

    Hey I'm not personally offended at all tbh, but you didn't make the statement as an opinion but fact, so unless u are super human I'm pretty sure you don't know 100% that God doesn't exist lol but your children not reading this is irrelevant, you come on here saying you teach your children to respect others beliefs but u do the complete opposite. That's hypocritical. I like to set the right example for my kids personally 😀

    Now you are putting words into my mouth. You can't hear the tone of my voice can you? I say gods not real. Pretty sure that's my opinion. I'm not saying it's true or not true. It's my opinion
