Kids do the funniest things and sometimes parents just sit back and watch it happen, without kicking up a fuss.

User ‘wafflezombies100’ asked online: “Parents of Reddit: what’s something your kids think they’re getting away with?”

More than 1,500 comments were posted with parents eager to find out more about these cheeky children.

We have picked our favourites below.

Worldtrvler shares the classic trick: “Not giving me back all my change.”


Grn_blt_primo said: “My three year old thinks I don’t notice that he sneaks his favourite hot wheels car under the pillow before bedtime so he can play with it at night.”


Flexthrustmore has the last laugh: “My three year old sneaks ‘candy’ from the freezer when I’m not looking. They’re actually frozen peas.”


This one is really cute: “Sneaking out of her room to say “goodnight to you one more time, mum!” Child please, I know you were trying to sneak your DS back to your room. Kid thinks she’s so smooth.”


Holzasago shares: “They think we don’t know they are giggling when we put them to bed. But as long as they are in bed and not loud we don’t mind.”


Delinia said: “Reading after lights out. He thinks he’s so sneaky but I was doing the same thing 25 years before he was born.”
