Lying About Your Child’s Age

Sep 17 2009 - 9:00am

When it comes to fudging the truth [1], are kids or adults the experts? Tweens find ways to round up their age to sound older than their actual years while their parents try to slow the aging process and round as their own birthdays pass. At the park the other day, I overheard a woman admitting she flat out lies to her gym about her child's age so they will admit her to the daycare. Her friend claimed they skirt the 2-year-old airline regulation by begging their son not to speak when asked how hold he is — an interesting tactic considering most airlines require a birth certificate upon arrival. Nevertheless, the conversation got me thinking – do you fib about your wee one's age?
