Christianity teaches that folloers of Christ aren't to tell a lie. They teach and know that God ABHORES the lie and the father of them, Satan.
A lie is a lie, no matter its size. Whether it's a "little White Lie" or a "Whopper", its still a lie nonetheless. So, knowing that whay do they willing lie to their children?
They tell their kids stories about how important it is for them to be good little rug rats around Christmas time or Santa Clause won't come vistit them. The adult knows that Santa is not real yet they do their best to convince their children that he is. They do the same with the Easter Bunny too.
They'll argue that those charactors are only make believe and ficticious but the stories that Mom and Dad tell the kiddies sure do convice the little ones that they are true. In my mind that's when they become a lie. So,
Why tell a lie to a kid when you're not supposed to?
