When I was about 9 my friend told me that she used to have a twin sister called Abby who dies when she was little, but I couldn't say anything to her mum about it because she would get really sad and start crying. So for many years I believed her and gave her mum a sad sympathetic look whenever I saw her!
As a kid, I assumed that adults always told the truth. I thought lying was strictly a kid thing you eventually got too old to do anymore. I see now that this is not neccessarily correct.
My husband and I tell my four year old daughter that when she telling a fib her ears turn red. I can tell when she's lying anyways, so I always know when to say it. I have even gone to the extreme of saying something she knows isn't true and pinching my ear so she will believe me! She doesn't lie to us anymore.
Once a group of us convinced a kid that you had to be 18 to go to a sushi bar, but if you were of asian descent, then you could get a permit to go at 16.
My friend Catherine's mom used to tell her that when she lied her tongue turned black. So if she lied she would never let anyone see her tongue
When I was younger my mother used to say that when I lied my tongue woud turn black and everyone would be able to see that I had lied.
When I would get a canker sore (a small painful ulcer in the mouth) as a child, my mom would tell that I got them because I told a lie. I would always go back and try to figure out what I lied about. Whenever I get a canker sore now, I think about what my mom always told me and smile!
When I was little, I had this really nasty babysitter. She told be that if I lied the world would explode in fire and brimstone. Not that I knew what brimstone was. But it got me to tell the gospel truth to anybody who asked for about a week, then I forgot.
I used to belive that if you didn't keep a promise you would have bad luck for the rest of your life
I used to believe that if a person lied, their nose would grow (as was the case in Pinnochio). I thought my mum must have been one hell of a liar.
I had a belief about the facts of life. When I was about 9 I asked my mum what the facts of life were, because a friend said he knew 7 facts of life and wouldn't tell me what they were!
When I was younger I use to believe anything my older brother said to me. He use to tell me that the fire work "Chasers/whistlers" would actually follow me around to hurt me. I use to be scared and try to hide but he said they would find me anyways and pop right where I was at.
When I was a child I was told and believe the a small red plane and a pilot named Windy would fly over children who were bad and tell thier parents what the child was doing
I found out at early that you couldn't always believe what your friends told you. When I was small, a friend of mine once told me that if you were bad or told a lie, then God put a big black mark up in the sky for everyone to see. For days, I went around afraid to look up.
not my belief, but a kid back in middle school (around 1985) who was a bit gullible. Often times when we saw him coming up to our table, we would act as if we were in the middle of a conversation about the new Star Trek 6 movie that just came out and how amazed we were are some of the changes in the characters (don't remember them now). Of coarse there was no such movie. But we had him conviced that he would have to go see it.
Okay, maybe I was a big liar as a kid, but I once told a girl on the playground that when I was born, I got to choose who would be my father...the man who's my dad OR Michael Jackson (Thriller had just come out). In light of recent events, I think I made a good choice!
When I was a kid, I made my friend believe that if he ate mud, he'd turn into the Incredible Hulk, like I did, and would become as strong as me...and he ate all the mud he could come across...
My mother used to tell me that if I lie, my teeth will all disappear.
I even hear adults saying this to their children nowadays.
My brothers convinced me at the age of 6 to touch an electric fence. They insisted that if you used a peice of grass to touch the wire it wouldn't shock. I was knocked off my feet while my brothers laughed for days. I'm not bitter. I hardly ever think about it now.
When I was about 6 years old I thought that if you repeated a lie to yourself for several minutes that it wasn't a lie anymore. I learned that I was really mistaken when I was caught doing something that I had lied about.
