BERLIN, GERMANY - JULY 17: A father and daughter walk in the city center on July 17, 2012 in Berlin, Germany. The German government recently passed a new law that will guarantee every child between 1 and 3 years old a spot in a child day care center (in German: a Kita, or Kindertagesstaette) starting August 1, 2013. Critics charge the law is based on faulty numbers and that both a shortage of facilities and nursery-school teachers will make the law impossible to implement. (Photo by Sean Gallup/Getty Images)

Mind. Blown.

While everyone’s parenting techniques may be different, there are a few things that are the same no matter what and today we found out on the show that we were all told the same lies as a kid!

Everyone has their reasons for stretching the truth or flat-out fibbing, but chances are you’ve heard (or even told) one of the below lies before.

  • Moms have eyes in the back of their heads
  • If you go outside with wet hair, you’ll catch a cold
  • If you turn on a light in the car at night, bad things happen
  • Watching too much TV will damage your eyesight
  • Swallowing gum = seven years of digestion
  • If you keep rolling your eyes, they’ll stay that way
  • Swimming after eating causes cramps
