I was told that if I vacuumed or swept the floor after sunset, then someone in the family was going to die. It wasn't so bad since I would just not clean at all until the day I felt like it.

If you waste one grain of rice, you lose a penny.

Having a long second toe meant you'll marry someone rich.

You have to spin your plate if someone is leaving the house during dinner, or else they'll get into an accident.

If you don't eat all your food, another child somewhere in the world will die of starvation.

There were the usual Tooth Fairy and Santa lies, nothing that original there.

There was also this one story where if I don't use protection, an aswang (a ghoul/vampire thing) will come from the roof when I'm sleeping and eat me and the fetus. Relevant

My parents were way too real with me, no santa clause or easter bunny, no babies coming from storks or monsters, I'm kinda disappointed to be honest.
That being said, I had a friend who was told an interesting spin on the usual santa clause story. His parents told him that santa was actually a billionaire with insane lock picking skills who would fly around America(in this story each country had its own santa) with toys bought from Target and deliver them by breaking into people's houses. To convince him it was true they had a friend of theirs come by each year in a santa costume. That lie is apparently better than the usual one since he was the last person in my class to stop believing in santa clause.


What entertaining parents! We met some children when we were young who were told that they'd been brought to their families on aeroplanes. I guess they modernised the stork story. I proceeded to give them a life lesson on exactly where babies came from. Teachers were not pleased with me or my siblings for doing this.

My parents never really lied to me. They actually went out of their way to make sure I didn't believe in things like Santa Claus to the point where I would try to convince other kids that he wasn't real. I remember making one kid cry when I told him his parents were liars.

That the sink water in the bathroom was the same as toilet water. My mom told me this when I was learning to brush my teeth at an early age so I wouldn't swallow the water, I guess. It always kinda freaked me out after that though, like i was brushing my teeth with pee or something.

I once confronted my parents on having sex when my friends were here and my mom said that my dad was just massaging my mom.

While I still don't know if this is necessarily a lie, my dad believes that if you put nose grease in a bubbly carbonated drink, the fizz will go away... I've seen him do it, so he clearly must believe it to do something as stupid and gross as that, but idk.

On the flipside, as a child I told my parents a ridiculous lie that, when I was in 1st grade gym class, they would make us put our feet up to heaters. Not sure how that is necessarily a bad thing, except for maybe sweaty feet. I'm also not sure why I did that... I liked first grade gym class. Maybe I was mad because I sucked at jump-rope...

My mom said that if you swallow your gum, your butt would stick together. One day, I swallowed my gum and started crying. She just started laughing and gave me water with sugar in it, saying that it was a "magic potion," which would fix my butt.

I was pretty annoyed when she told me the truth, but I guess you could say I put it behind me.


Not quite a lie, more like simplifying for a child

Swallowing gum over time can cause a blockage in your intestines and cause you to get well beyond constipated, as such you won't have anything exiting there (and it will make you quite sick)

I have known people who needed a doctor to go in there to clean out all the gum stuck to their intestines!

So I wouldn't classify what your mom said as a lie, she just simplified it for a child's understanding

When we were little, my mom would always to tell us to put on our seat belts when there were police around. She told us that they had x-rays that could see if we were wearing seat belts.
