Parenting Hack 1: Punishing Your Kid
When punishing your kids, don’t take away their electronics. Just take their charger and watch the fear in their eyes as they use it less and less while the battery slowly dies.

Parenting Hack 2: Always give your kid a choice that makes them think they are in control. For instance when I want my child to put on his shoes I will say, “do you want to put your star wars shoes on or your shark shoes on?”

Parenting Hack 3: Before giving a kid your phone, put it on airplane mode. They can’t buy or download anything that way.

Parenting Hack 4: Have a newborn? Sleep with its baby blanket for one night so you leave your scent. This will be comforting for them.

Parenting Hack 5: Clogged drain? Pour one cup of baking soda and half a cup of vinegar down it. Cover the plug with a plate and wait for 30 minutes, then blast it with hot water. Problem solved!

Parenting Hack 6: If you ever have to clean up vomit (and I hope you never do) put ground coffee on it first. It takes away the smell and dehydrates it. You can then sweep it up easily.

Parenting Hacks 7: Reward your kids with things they get to do instead of things they get to have. This teaches them that true happiness comes from experiences instead of possessions.
