It’s back-to-school time!  When you’re not stocking up on glue, crayons, and everything else your kid will lose by day three, you need to prepare on what to say as they head off on their new adventure.  We’ll get you started with today’s list of Lies We Tell Our Kids on Their First Day of School.

  • Just be yourself and everyone will like you.
  • You look totally normal carrying that backpack that is six times your body weight.
  • This giant metal fence topped with barbed wire is to keep all the fun inside.
  • I can’t wait to hear about your day.
  • If anyone picks on you, just say “Hey, you’re not being very nice” and they will never bother you again.
  • That funny smell on your teacher’s breath isn’t alcohol.
  • I had so much fun in school that I wish I could go back.
  • Remember, there is no such thing as a dumb question.
  • I’m going to miss you so much.
