Top ten strange myths we tell kids
The Glue of Lies
The comedian philosopher George Carlin once said "Bull(****) is the glue that binds our society", I think we can all agree to that at some level or another. We have all grown up to learn that life has subtle shades of greys, that no one answer is ever the answer. For instance most of us will be willing to lie in order to protect anyone we care about, especially ourselves. So when it comes to the peoples we instinctively care about the most, to our children we tell alot of lies. We build up onto them a foundation of "lies", forming many myths that will entertain and comfort them, and theres the beautiful part. Nature has designed these critters to soak up every bit of information we feed them, because they have little time to know better.
For those of you who now think they do know better, remember when you didn't? Remember the good old days, you know the childhood days when everyone played along with the myths. Wasn't that great fun, well take a moment to look back. What was your favourite myth that you were told as a child. The myth you held most dearly, the one that was hardest to give away.
