Jane Brummell: The dolphins will have no water to swim in if they leave the tap running.


Cathy Sladok: Told our daughter that kiwi fruit are eggs from a kiwi bird.. thought she was so smart till she told her friends. Everyone is still laughing about it today.. 

Sarah Nixon: My kids used to nag to stop in maccas or hjs every time we drove past so I told them Maccas ran out of food and hungry jacks was broken. Worked for almost a year.

Anne Pointon: Yep..most people forget that "whopper".. I told my kids the truth from the start and they thanked me when their friends were being heart-broken finding out the truth.  

Chris Bonner: My daughter didn't want to go to school, she said she was sick. Ok I told her she should take a pain killer but if she wasn't sick it would make her really sick and vomit. She got dressed in 5 minutes and was off to school.
