9 Worst Lies People Heard As Children

Lies: we all tell them. However, to what extent have parents lied to their kids to maintain their own bizarre worldview? 

An online forum is buzzing with tales of regret and retrospective indignation. Tragically, some people just have evil parents. Others have odd parents with peculiar philosophies on anything from sweating during play to chewing food a certain way. 

Here are 9 of the worst lies people lived as children. 

1. Subliminal Messaging

Our first entry shows how one parent’s friend has an overbearing, religious mother. “Her friend was not allowed to have a unicorn coloring book,” explains the concerned contributor. But why unicorns? “Because mythical creatures are Satanic.” Oh-kay.

2. Child Labor?

“We were never yelled at, hit, (or) made to refill wine glasses,” explains a guy discussing surprise at his first sleepover with friends. Some trashy parents treat their children with utter contempt. Just imagine making your children feel like this. 

3. Child Services Needed

One man recalls how scared he was when playing at his friend’s house as a kid because the father’s philosophy was that children should play outside — even in 115 degrees of brutal summer weather. “Once my dad picked me up, I never hung out with my best friend again,” he laments. 

4. Sheltered Parenting Doesn’t Even Come Close

Imagine being told you cannot go out for six months because you have an exam. This is the story of our next entry about a school buddy’s overprotective parents. “I later learned that their parents wouldn’t let them go out for the whole year unless it was a family event or their birthday.” 

5. Religulous

A gentleman refers to when his adoptive parents forced him to be an altar boy in the Nebraskan summer heat. After collapsing from heat stroke, what did his parents do to help when they got home? “I was made to recite the Rosary for four hours on my knees in that same summer heat.” Spoiler alert: he passed out again and was exiled to his room without food or water. 

6. Karen Supremacists

Imagine going to a sleepover at eight years old and being told you could not speak at the dinner table, use the bathroom, or chew your food too much before swallowing. This doesn’t even make sense; more chewing means better dispersal of nutrients. Some parents are like supreme Karens. 

7. No Sweat — No, Seriously!

What is it with some parents? I have heard tales of abuse, but this one is just too much. A commenter shares a story of growing up and visiting relatives, where “we were not permitted to sweat because that meant we were having too much fun.” I mean, really? Not sweating to preserve one’s formal clothing, I can understand. Too much fun, though?

8. Medieval Courting

You meet a new woman, life is good, and you can’t wait to meet her family. Sounds good, right? Not for this guy, who found his new girlfriend’s parents were a little more than just conservative. “At her parent’s house,” he remembers, “we weren’t allowed to sit next to each other or stand near one another.” Yikes. 

9. 30 Minutes After You Eat

Some urban legends grow into personal health choices — in this case, the ‘no swimming 30 minutes after you eat’ rule. One thread member says their friend’s parents conflated the swimming part with showering or bathing. They say, “My friend was a fully formed adult before realizing that showering after eating wasn’t a risk to her health.”
