Last year for my dad’s birthday, we decided to do something special, something he’d never expect. We bought him a diploma. I know what you’re thinking, “how did you BUY a diploma?”. The truth is, we went online to purchase one through those sites that sells fake diplomas. I know some of you hear a lot of news about mills, but we found truly positive use for the product and it’s one we wanted to share. Why didn't your dad go to college or graduate from there? You see my dad was raised in Western Australia, working on his father’s farm growing up. After secondary school, he started to attend college to study agriculture.

As parents, one of the hardest things you can see a child go through is struggles. We watch our daughter struggling with college and contemplate dropping out. No sure what to do next, a neighbor of ours suggest using a novelty degree as a way to boost her self-esteem and encourage her to graduate. At the time, the idea seemed irrational but getting a fake Melbourne diploma was worth a shot. She started taking classes there after secondary school and early on, hopes were high. It was until about a year in, that she started to have a hard time in class. It wasn’t until late that she realized she was spending too much time going out and not enough time with her studies. When we confronted her about it, both my husband and I could tell she had lost interest in getting her degree. We wanted to do something to encourage...
