Have you ever lied on purpose to avoid having to tell people personal info about your family problems?

Lately I have found myself telling people things are okay with my kids when they ask just so I don't have to go into the problems that we are dealing with as a family. I am just wondering...

  • Yup, but in my situation I probably should've spoken out more, but not necessarily to everyone that asked....

  • I do that with strangers all the time. They ask, and I know they don't really want to know or can't fix it anyway. Not everyone needs to know everything.
