Eldest daughter used to pronounce magazine as mazageen when she was a toddler - and because I thought it was funny I encouraged her to think that was correct - stopped when I had to stop myself and think which way round was correct one day !

We told our daughter that her pinefore or school was actually a pin-a-five.

Also that you played chess with prawns.

(She was not best pleased when she found out that she was getting these words wrong for many years...made us giggle )

When I was little my dad told me that Bognor Regis was called that because the Queen had once been to the toilet there and I believed him.

I've told my son (3) that hiccups are a sign he's lied to me recently.

I told my admittedly at the time very young daughter that trampolines were called that because in "the olden days" they used to be leant on their sides to be used, which because she is young and I am Dad she believed completely.

Years later when she was 15 she recalled this piece of information totally out of the blue and informed her young niece, sadly she wasn't joking but not being quite so gullible my niece said "Yeah but surely you just fall onto the ground" the look on her face was priceless as the penny finally dropped.

When I was young my dad told me that the "popper" clothes fastening device was named after their inventor Karl Popper.

Seemed reasonable at the time, and we didn't have Wikipedia back then.

Oh yeah and "I'd love to watch Beauty and the beast again with you" closely followed by "It got stuck in the DVD player and doesn't work now" and "we'll get you another one"

We told our kid that Disney Jnr no longer worked because the "mickey mouse" programmes were so bad. We just put it on pin protected. It worked and now we don't have to put up with Disney crap. Well worth a little white lie.

When I was about 9, my oldest brother told me, if I say i'm going to run away from home they'll lock me up in a mental hospital for the rest of my life. Scared the hell out of me. Turns out he was right though.
