To make it seem like they were a better student than they actually were, one person would print off quizzes he already took, complete them, then give himself a better grade and argue with the teacher about it. Luckily the principal didn’t get his parents involved and gave him a light punishment. However, the teacher decided to call the parents himself.

One kid was always warned not to go on the frozen pond near his house. One day while playing soccer, the ball ended up right in the middle of the lake. So, the kid went out to get it, but as he came back he fell through the ice and into the water. He had to break through the ice to get back to shore. He still has not told his parents about the terrifying moment.

The Spill

Kid logic is pretty hilarious. One kid spilled grape juice on the carpet and decided to cover it with a pillow, sit on said pillow, and never leave that spot so her parents would never find out about it. Obviously her mom found out and was pretty upset about the pillow being ruined rather than the carpet.

Harsher Than the Cops

One kid was pulled over for going 70 mph in a 45 mph zone. While talking to the cops, his father called. The cops asked to speak to him. After they hung up, they recommended that he get home quickly because his father had a worse punishment for him than the ticket from the cops.

Some parents are so strict about curfew times that it instills so much fear into their children. One mom always wanted her kids home by 8 pm or when the streetlights came on, whichever happened first. One day, the kids were late by 20 minutes and were trying to make up an excuse together. When they walked through the door, their mom was standing there, waiting to yell at them after overhearing their excuses.
