The key to being a parent is teaching your kids to be honest . . . while you're lying to their faces CONSTANTLY.  It's a delicate balance. A new survey done by NOW TV, found the five most common white lies parents tell.  

1.  Telling your kids that an annoying toy is lost . . . when you really got rid of it.

2.  Lying to your friends about your parenting style.  "Oh yeah, we totally limit screen time too . . ."

3.  Saying you have to leave somewhere like a playground because it's closing . . . even though it's really not.

4.  Pretending you didn't eat their candy or other food.

5.  Pretending to call the police because they did something bad.
