    Lmao just remembered my DP tells the kids that the icecream truck plays the music when it's out of icecream, when it's going past. They see through that now lol.

    I have a little sister 8 years younger than me. I remember for two years my dad would play a recorded big dog at 6.30pm every night and off to bed she would go

    I used to tell my kids that I'm drinking wine, and wine is not appropriate for children. In reality, I sometimes have soft drink or juice, which I don't share because it sends them crazy!!!

    This backfired on me though, my dd2 told a friend that I was drinking wine in the morning!! So I started calling it "mummy medicine", instead of wine, though I guess this could backfire too??!!

    I also tell them that things have caffeine in them, even when they don't, as caffeine is not appropriate for children!

    I probably should just tell them the truth, the lying isn't a good example to be setting..

    I set all the clocks on the devices forward last night so the kids would go to bed early

    I haven't read any responses only the thread title...

    I tell my kids toys are broken when I don't want them playing with particular toys or that the batteries have run out.

    I tell them shops and cafes etc are closed if they hound me about going somewhere.

    I also tell them some places close down so we don't have to back again. First example a play cafe we went to and DD would get sick every second time we went there. Also the first child care centre she was at also 'closed down' as she was disappointed to leave - despite the fact she mostly hated it there!
