8 Students Tell Us The BIGGEST Lie They Have Told Their Parents

August 26, 2020

Sandra

One time, I had a hickey on my neck that I kept hiding. My mother saw it one day and asked me what it was. I told her it was rash. Whenever she looked at me, I would just keep scratching my neck.

Tunde

I once told my parents money for books for that session was two hundred thousand naira. I used the money to take one girl out, but she turned me down when I formally asked her out. That part stung.

Amanda

I once told my parents I was going for a job, meanwhile it was a dick appointment. They even dropped me off at the place. Time to come home, and they said they would pick me up. I had to take a bike from Iyana Ipaja to Maryland

Bisi

I told my mother I was going to my friend’s place to study, meanwhile it was actually a party. In the Uber there, we stopped to buy gas and I saw my dad’s car also parked. It was funny because he was meant to be in Calabar for a business meeting. We lived in Lagos.

Emeka

I kept lying to my parents for months that I was in the Seminary, but the truth was that I actually left three weeks after they dropped me there.

Amina

One day I was sore after certain “activities” and I kept wincing when I moved. My mother asked what was wrong so I told her it was because I just started working out

Kunle

They both travelled out of the country and left me at home because of school. I was using their car to have a good time and even loaned it out to some guys in school. One returned it and the car was almost unrecognisable. When they came back, I told them I was robbed and the thieves stole the car. It has been four months and they do not know what really happened

Tomiwa

Told my parents I was going for a vigil, meanwhile I went to get an abortion.
