Parenting is tough, and often needs out-of-the-box, innovative thinking. Take this mother for instance who came up with an amazing trick to stop her kids from hitting each other. On June 2, Diksha Basu took to Twitter, sharing the rather hilarious but useful trick so that her children would stop hitting each other.
“Told my kids they were allowed to hit each other once per day so they should really think it through and not waste their one hit and now they’re calmly discussing when might be the best time to hit each other (but the actual hitting has stopped, I’m a genius),” she wrote.

While many who came across the hack found it useful, others shared their own tips and tricks they use around the house. Take a look at some of the reactions.
This tweet made me realise the only reason to have kids: turn your daily life into a reality show of your choosing

One time I forgot to put money under my sons pillow in exchange for a tooth. ( tooth fairy). I told him that because he didn’t brush his teeth at night his tooth had a cavity and tooth fairy only collects good teeth. He brushed regularly after that. Genius!😂

Lol.. Mine have a deal between them. The one who hits first will be hit three times back by the other. Since that pact, it has reduced quite a bit!

LOL genius. I started reading the tweet feeling like it was questionable choice of words but finished reading it feeling like “damn, smart!” pic.twitter.com/g7LxfzinzJ
