Parenting hacks were created by people who understand the struggle of getting your kids to co-operate especially when there’s little time to spare, you know what I mean? Getting them ready for school, taking them to the park, making breakfast (cool breakfast ideas for a 2-year-old are particularly hard!) feeding treats and monitoring them so nobody makes a mess, picking up legos and dolls off of the floor (cleaning tips and tricks) stuff along those lines; there were no diy books on these issues for me. We put together a little something for everyone, from toddler to the big kids. These are pretty clever and should have you AND the kids ready to take on whatever the day (and night) throw at you. Not to mention it should give you some time to relax and have a glass of bubbly to celebrate your extreme success with saving time and keeping them booked and busy, whether unknowingly helping you with chores (cleaning tricks) or dressing correctly!
Here we go, how many times have you had to call them back into the house (if you’re lucky enough to notice) that shoes are on the wrong feet of your 5-year-old? Too many times for me to mention! I found a hack for that good people! All you need to do is get a Disney sticker (disney diy) or any kind for that matter, as long as it has a left and right discerning sides; and cut it in half, then place one on the back side of the pair of shoes and so when your little one needs to put them on, all they have to do is line them up so the stickers make a complete picture and problem solved. Do this for every shoe if you must, the time saved is invaluable. I don’t know about you but I can’t stand for long pushing the swing higher and higher on command, I need to sit and catch my breath sometimes; hack number 2, get some rope and thread it through the loops of the swing seat and around your kid, make a knot and walk over to your chair then pull to swing! I want to give you one last one parenting hack number 3, keeping the kiddies from falling out of the bed or banging those precious fingers when the door slams, welcome to the pool noodle! Cut the noodle according to the length of the bed and put it at the edge of the bed under the sheets to keep your kids from falling out and to avoid the door slamming cut the noodle in half and then make a slit and affix it to the edge of the door.
Listen there are a thousand more ways to parent effectively and efficiently while keeping your sanity and your loved mini-me/s happy. If you also created some genius parenting hacks I would love to add them to my list, so send, send, send!
