Mother knows best—and she knows everything.
Parents spilled the secrets that their kids thing that they're hiding from them, and both six-year-olds and sixteen-year-olds underestimate how observant their parents are and/or their own sneakiness skills.

A few years ago, I was going through my son's (3rd grade) backpack and found a can of ravioli. That's all well, except I never bought any ravioli. When I asked him about it, he burst into tears and and pulled out a box under his bed filled with Ravioli! He then proceeded to tell me how this girl that picks on him and says they are married, gives him ravioli everyday and makes him take it. I can just picture this girl's mother telling her the way to a man's heart is through his stomach. -Lael_Annaed
