I think parents who say they never lie to their kids are either lying themselves or in denial. I tell outrageous lies to my kids all the time and it makes them laugh. I enjoy a silly, fun home environment so it's very common for me to tell a kid that if they don't stop misbehaving a turnip is going to sprout from their nose. If that means they will need therapy in late life, oh least they'll have a good sense of humor.
sounds like me too. I admit that I am not above bribing too. I keep a supply of gummy bears, fruit leathers, and Popsicles!
