Liar, Liar Pants on Fire!

A new show on Netflix is the Netflix Original Series, Bloodline. The Rayburn family, who the show is about,  has some dark family secrets that they are willing to do anything to keep from getting out – lying included. While you may not know the Rayburn clan just yet, The Canadian Press calls Bloodline “a searing family drama.” Starring Kyle Chandler (Friday Night Lights) and set in the Florida Keys, the series follows a family caught between the ugly truth and the terrible lie that covers it up – a storyline that conjured The Montreal Gazette to reveal they were “unable to stop watching after one episode.” 

But let’s face it, we all lie. Like telling the kids there are no more cookies, meanwhile the bag is still full! Or when they are too young to tell the time, telling them it’s bedtime when we desperately need some alone time, when it’s still an hour to their usual bedtime!

White lies make life easier for parents (the park is closed today) or make our kids happy (Santa Claus is coming!). Young kids make up stories as they learn the difference between fact and fiction, while older kids sometimes lie to cover for each other or to stay out of trouble.

It’s a hard line as parents to say what lies are okay to tell. Little white lies are harmless for the most part, but if we let those go, how do we get our kids to understand if they tell a bigger lie.

Netflix has shows for kids of all ages that have episodes about lying – watch with your kids or enjoy Bloodline yourself – I haven’t started it yet, but look forward to soon!
