Mum admits she tried to cheat NCEA in our Parental Confessionals

Jay-Jay & Flynny 28/06/2022

Father Flynny, Alter Boy Dave and new Flower Arranger Aussie Boss Amy have reopened the Confessional Booth for your parenting sins. (Jay-Jay's been sick this week - don't worry though, it wasn't the return of that old spicy Cov cough).

In our parental confessional booth, we don't judge (much). We're all about forgiveness for our parenting sins. But we're sure our first caller Emma will return after she confessed she's been lying to her two-year-old and five-year-old children. 

When my kids go to bed at night, I take their chocolate and eat it and tell them that the tooth fairy has taken it.

Emma won't be the first parent to eat their children's chocolate, and she won't be the last. And she'll probably do it again. "Depends how hungry I am."

Second caller Miriam confessed her children have been watching a bit of a naughty film not meant for young ears and eyes.

"My seven and ten year old watched the movie Ted. I didn't quite realise how bad it was!"

In all fairness to Miriam, Ted is a deceptive film featuring a foul mouthed teddy bear and Mark Wahlberg. And not every Mark Wahlberg is family friendly.

However, of all the confessionals we heard this week, mum Jo took the cake.

"Forgive me, Father Flynny, because I have sinned. I completed one of my son's college assignments for him."

What's worse was that her son didn't even pass the assignment, thanks to a little thing called plagarism.

He didn't get the NCEA credits for it and he got in trouble at school. But he didn't dob me in!

Parents may think they're more intelligent than NCEA, but NCEA (and NCEA's plagarism checker) will be there to prove everyone wrong...
