Backseat Heroes: The awkward questions your kids ask in the car.

Gotta love the questions kids ask in cars. From “why did they build the Great Wall of China?” to “why are your nipples so big?” there never seems to be anything kids don’t think to cover. And the worst part for parents is that when you’re stuck in the car and travelling down a highway there’s no escaping the answers.

For comedian and Mamamia writer Em Rusciano, awkward questions in the car is something she deals with on a daily basis. Em recently took us on a ride in the car and gave us an insight into some of the questions she’s asked by her two daughters -Marchella and Odette.

Sometimes, it’s the moments in the car that can drive quality time between mums and their kids. Our Backseat Hero Competition looks to celebrate those shared moments.

For the next four weeks, we’re going to be bringing you a video each week about the moments mums share with their kids in the car. There will be a theme for each video and every week we’ll be asking you to share your own memories via social media or in the comments section of the post for your chance to win.

Entry can be via Instagram, Instavideo, Facebook, or Twitter. Whichever one you fancy! Just make sure that your entry is hashtaged as #backseatheroes.  (And please remember proper car safety, especially child safety restraints.)

From the great memories you share each week, a winner and a runner up will be chosen to win a cash prize. First place will win a $750 cash card, and the runner up will win a $250 cash card.
