My Great Big Midlife Unlearning - The White lies of childhood



We all have all told them, innocent-seeming ‘white lies’.  

Some of these ‘white lies’ have originated from us.  

And some ‘white lies’ have been passed to us by our parents and we unthinkingly pass them to our children. It seems like such a natural process ‘a family tradition’ almost, that it doesn’t even occur to us that we have a choice in the matter.  

These ‘lies’ seem so innocent that we really don’t question whether they are right or wrong or what the long term effects of telling them will be.

Today, I am stirring up a bit of controversy with Easter coming up. 

I am questioning whether or not we should be encouraging our children to believe in mythical holiday characters such as Santa, the Tooth Fairy and the Easter Bunny. However, this could be applied to any untruth we tell our kids really.

Join me for the discussion where I will be chatting about:

  • The Maiden Archetype and who she is.
  • My experiences as a mother who did encourage her children to believe in the Easter Bunny.
  • How the finding out of my ‘white lies’ affected my children and how they found out.
  • What I would have done differently.
