Did your parents tell you the tale of the boogie man, or that they had to taste test you Halloween candy to make sure it's safe?

Today on The Morning Mayhem with Tess and Heather, asked the question, what white lies did your parents tell you when you where little, or what white lies do you tell your kids?

Tess (Taylor) from WKFR...

"When my parents took me camping they would tell us the tale of the 'Green Gigsy', who would snatch up children when they were misbehaving at the camp site."

Heather (McGregor) from WKFR...

"My mom would only allow us to have non-sugar cereals but we could put as much sugar on it that we wanted. As an adult I found out that the sugar bowl was filled with powdered milk not sugar."
