We all do it. We tell our kids those little white lies to get through the day. “The iPad is broken.” “If you make that face for too long it will stake like that forever.” But those lies get a little more complicated around the holidays. “A man is going to come down the chimney with presents!” And, “There’s a little Elf who’s watching to make sure you’re behaving!” Alana Keyfetz and Dr. Dina Kulik, from the “Moms That Say F*ck” podcast, are here to help us figure out when these fibs are helpful and when could they be harmful.
