The Five Most Common White Lies Parents Tell

March 28, 2017

As a parent we want to teach our children to be honest, yet we are always telling them white lies…I know, we are all hippocrates. Most of the lies are for our own selfish comfort, you know like not having to deal with noise or temper tantrums. All for a good cause if you ask me.

Well there was a New Survey that found the five most common white lies that us parents like to tell, here they are.


1.  Telling your kids that an annoying toy is lost or broken . . . when in reality you really got rid of it or gave it to a neighborhood kid. (Let their parents deal with it, am I right?)


2.  Lying to your friends about the way you parent.  “oh yea, we limit sweets in our house hold too . . .”


3.  Saying you have to leave somewhere like a playground because it’s closing . . . even though it’s really not.


4.  Pretending you didn’t eat their candy or other food . . . I find blaming it on the dog is the best way to go.


5.  Pretending to call the police because they did something bad. “This also works with Santa around Christmas time.”





Eight Ways Daylight Saving Time Makes Your Job Harder

March 13, 2017

According to a new survey, only 17% of us get at least eight hours of sleep a night.  And with Daylight Saving Time, it’s even lower today.  Here are the top eight reasons your job might be harder because of the time change . . .

1.  It seems like your day goes slower.  That was the number one answer.  29% of the people in the survey agreed with it.

2.  Being tired makes you feel less motivated.

3.  It makes you less productive.

4.  You have a harder time remembering stuff.

5.  It takes longer to complete certain tasks.

6.  You get irritated by your coworkers more easily.

7.  You make more mistakes.

8.  It makes you resent your job more.

Also, a new CDC study looked at which jobs mess with people’s sleep schedules the most.  The jobs where you’re least likely to get at least seven hours of sleep include switchboard operators, railway workers, food prep supervisors, and firefighters.

The jobs where you’re MOST likely to get enough sleep include air traffic controllers . . . church workers . . . teachers . . . and farmers.
