Being a parent is one of the most rewarding and one of the hardest things that any person will ever do. Our children bring joy to our lives; they bring frustration, exhaustion, and tons of love. To help you be a better parent or at least make difficult parenting situations easier, we have a few parenting hacks you can try.
Get a baby mop outfit. Dress your baby in a baby mop outfit and allow him to have fun while helping you to clean the house.
Use a baby shower cap. This cap that almost looks like a big flower contributes to letting the water run off away from your baby’s eyes and face. This will make bath time a bit less traumatic.
Put cardboard over stairs to make a slide. Your kids will love you, and it is an excellent way to keep them busy when the weather is bad or the school holidays are getting too long.
Make chores a game. The more fun and interesting you make cleaning a room, sweeping the floor, taking out the trash, or feeding the dog, the more likely you are to get results. Chores that are fun do not work and is easier to establish a routine.
Give kids fake remotes. If you like playing Xbox or PlayStation games, allow your kids to play along. The trick is to give them remotes that are unplugged. They will never know.
Make a hammock from a sheet. Use a large sheet, curtain, or tablecloth and tie it across the underside of a table. Create a little hammock under the table. Your kid will love the swinging, it feels like a fort, and it will give them a fun rest.
Spare your banisters. Instead of nailing baby gates to your banisters, use cable ties. They cause less damage and is much easier to remove when your child is all grown up.
These hacks will make your babies happy, allow them to have fun, and allow you to breathe a little. Parenting should, after all, also be fun and exciting.
