A young woman has revealed the cheeky trick her parents used to stop her lying as a child.

The trick was so convincing she and her brother would put on a hat or cover their forehead with their hands when spinning a wild tale.
The young Australian, who has 400,000 followers online and likes to joke she’s ‘peaked at 22’, revealed her parent’s trick in a viral video over the weekend.
She explained she would lean her head in her hands and say ‘I did not hit him’ every time they were called out for anti-social behaviour.
