Many parents white-lie to their children in order to protect them or just make their life easier, and kids believe all kinds of tales.
An ingenious mom from Poughkeepsie, New York gained huge popularity on social media recently for the hilarious white lie she told her children when she was trying to put them to bed.
Unbelievably, she told her hyped-up kids that they need to lie still in order to “charge their glow-in-the-dark pajamas”.
Jessica D’Entremont is the mom of the 3-year-old Hannelore and 4-year-old Emma, and she wrote in her Facebook post that in order to keep your kids still, you can buy them glow-in-the-dark PJs and tell them that they have to lie really still under the light to “charge” them.
To extend the trickery even further, she’s started putting the PJs back into their drawers when they get dressed in the morning, unexposed to light all day so they dim and do not glow in the dark.
Check out her original post for yourself below:
The hilarious “tip” and photo received more than 220k likes and 132k shares on Facebook, and many parents loved the idea.
