Dealing with unruly, generally messy or misbehaving children can be a heck of a drag. This particular Voolas contributor doesn’t actually have any kids, but they do have wild nieces and nephews who tend to leave a collection of absolute chaos in their paths, wherever they go. That’s why you have to respect these parents who have come up with unique and often hilarious ways of taking care of business when their children are acting up or not helping around the house. From hiding the keys to the xbox plug in your son’s messy room, to giving back the WIFI password in exchange for a photo of a freshly cleaned kitchen, these techniques are truly awesome. Needless to say, these genius parenting techniques are absolutely amazing.
