I had this coworker that got pregnant and she didn't tell her daughter who was around the age of 9 or so. The Mother carried this baby and gave birth to it, gave it up for adoption. When the Mother came home from the hospital her 9 year old daughter asked her "where's my new brother or sister?" The Mother was shocked. She had never told her daughter she was pregnant. How did she know?<br />

Well, I think it's kind of obvious how she knew. You looked pregnant...<br />
<br />
She just said to her child " What do you mean? I wasn't pregnant.."<br />

People seem to think kids are stupid and don't understand even the simple things so they feel it's OK to lie to them. They won't know any better, right? It's absurd!

There are outright lies like Santa is coming to bring you presents and there are lies such as everything is fine, when in reality you're being evicted from your home, however in the latter instance it's about protecting the child from undue stress and worry, it is not the child's responsibility to be concerned with those types of issues and for the parents to sort out. Only when absolutely necessary should a child be told about serious issues like that, and even then in a delicate manner, and divulging every last piece of information is unnecessary. <br />
