• Many parents say that they lie in order to protect their children. Has your parent ever lied to you, and you found out it wasn't protection?

The Morning conversation on Morning Kiss  was based on what lie parents told us as kids.

Parents always lie to their children one way or the other in order to protect them or explain things that are hard to do in an easier manner.

Passing your examination in order to get a gift in return was one of the most common lies among all parents.

They used this method so that the children could work hard and get good grades.

Kwambox narrates how she got trust issues from her father's lies. She says that her father used to lie mostly when the lights went out and made her think that he was a magician.

"My dad lied to me when the lights were out, and he told me that he could switch on the TV with a candle. He told me to close my eyes and count to five then the lights TV switched on and that's how I grew up knowing that he was a magician."

Chito: My parents told me that shades are for thugs, and that's how I ended up not having to wear shades while growing up.

I mean whose parent never lied. My parents also lied to me, my mum used to tell me that she would not punish me when I made a mistake, and I ended up being flogged.

Here are some of the lies that parents have told Kiss FM listeners as they were growing up.
