Netflix #StreamTeam: You Can’t Hide Those Lyin’ Eyes


The Rayburns, from the new Netflix original series, Bloodline, have some dark family secrets they’re willing to do anything to keep from coming out, lying included.

We all know lying is bad but there are times where lying could help the situation. Being a parent we may sometimes struggle to differentiate between a harmless white lie and a bold face lie to our children. Of course honesty is always the best policy but have you ever thought about how often we as parents find ourself not being honest with our kids?

This week my daughter lost what seems like her umpteenth tooth and of course that meant the Tooth Fairy, or shall I say MOM had to shell out some cash. Not only that but I have to wait until she fell asleep and sneak into her room. Then fish around through a billion stuffed animals for her tooth and attempt to slip the money back in that exact spot. Every time it does cross my mind that why does the Tooth Fairy, Santa and the Easter Bunny get all of the credit? Why do my kids listen more when I say I’m going to tell Santa instead of them just listening to ME to begin with?

At the end of the day I tell myself to just let kids be kids. They grow up so fast and there’s always something about the excitement and anticipation from my children that it makes it all worth while. I’m dreading the day when my kids find out the TRUTH but when that day comes I guess I’ll tackle it as best as I can. I hope they don’t see it as a lie more of keeping up a tradition.

Here’s another white lie I’m always telling my kids. They LOVE watching Netflix on the iPad and when it’s time for them to take a break it will mysteriously disappear or the batteries suddenly are drained. That’s a little lie I don’t feel bad about telling them.

When it is time for their iPad time they always choose Netflix. Here are some of suggestions for your little ones and the whole family!
