Most parents tells lies to their children as a tactic to change their behaviour, suggests a study of families in the United States and China.The most frequent example was parents threatening to leave children alone in public unless they behaved.
Researchers concluded that this raises "important moral questions for parents about when, if ever, parental lying is justified".From this article http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/education-21144827Do you think lying to your kids is ever justified?

Erm yes, I have done similar to most of these! I'm pretty sure I was told similar and it hasn't affected me in any way. Isn't Santa and the tooth fairy the same then?

WPS with reguards to Santa. Kids, if you're naughty, a stranger won't break in to the house, and leave you gifts (yet we teach them about not accepting thing off strangers)
I've lied to my kids, like my Mum lied to me.
