7 lies every Ghanaian parent says to their kids

“When I was your age I always topped the class”. And they’ll say this with their whole chest without any report card to show evidence. The annoying part? “Kojo, why do you like lying? Where did you learn to lie like that.” Well, the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.

Ghanaian parents will never admit it but they are masters of deception. You can qualify it as white lies or even rainbow lies if you want, but some Ghanaian parents could lie their way out of a death grip. Some of their lies will put you in a bottle. And the funny part? Most of them lie unprovoked.

Here are some popular lies Ghanaian parents tell their kids.

Forget it. You aren’t getting that money. Ever. Your favourite Auntie Nana Adwoa Awindor comes from abroad and dashes you some pounds or dollars. And you mother sees it. Sorry for your loss but that money is no longer yours. When you ask for it. The answer: “You think I feed you with money growing on trees, eh?

2. “I never worried my parents like this.”

Oh, so you were such an angel, eh? Then why did you tell us about how your father disciplined you with the Spare the Rod and Spoil the Child Montesorri method?
