On Sunday BBC presenter Dan Walker posed a question on Twitter to his followers asking, "What are the fibs you've told your children?"
His tweet received hundreds of responses and they're all pretty damn great.
Some parents lied to get out of work.
Others lied to get off the hook.
Lies ranged from sweetly innocent...
...To just plain devious...
...And of course the biggest white lie of them all.
So all you dishonest parents out there, what's your favorite white lie to tell children? Tell us in the comments.
