There are many reasons why people lie. Especially when mothers lie, the background and motivation may vary depending on the situation and individual. Some common reasons include:
protection and care
Mothers often lie to protect their children and keep them from getting hurt. In these cases, lying may be used as a means to protect the child's safety or emotional well-being.
fatigue or stress
Moms can feel stressed and tired just like anyone else, and can sometimes be dishonest in these situations. Stress or fatigue can cause people to hide their abilities and distort reality.
Amazing or imaginary story
In some cases, mothers try to make up stories for their children. These stories can spark your imagination and mean sharing special moments with your children.
Social etiquette depending on the situation
In some situations, subtle lies may be considered part of social etiquette. For example, you may speak more softly or embellish your opinions to avoid hurting others.
Of course, lying can cause trust issues, and the important thing is that even if you lie, it is important to understand the reason and situation and restore honesty and trust through conversation. Additionally, it may be helpful to strengthen communication between parents and children through open conversations about lying.
