There are hundreds of parenting hacks out there, and we can all agree that those who are the best among them are popular among parents across the globe. The advice one could give others might be considered pure gold, but it also might turn out to be worthless. We guess that some people would agree that one parent might agree with a hack, while another one could declare it unusable. Some hacks are even plain lies parents tell their kids in order to control them. Such manipulations are sometimes a must.

 

1. The fairy

Now, this is what we call a classic trick. Some people may think that this is wrong, but we guess that certain kids would never clean their rooms otherwise.

2. The toddler

Wow, this really sounds like a huge achievement, and we are certain that not all parents would be able to reach this skill level.

3. The time

Sometimes, it all comes down to having the right approach. As you can see, this person managed to add a twist to the meal without actually changing it.

5. The lie

Here is something that is not a lie, but it is often not true, of course. Most parents who are not sure about something often use the fact they are adults as an advantage.

In this case, the father did not only succeed in deceiving his offspring, but he did it all at his wife’s expense. We guess she was not happy when she found out.

10. The example

We agree with this post, especially about the part about Baby Shark. Yes, that tune was a big success, but it was too much to handle when played multiple times a day.

11. The hummus

This was surely not something we can consider an important mission, but it is surely a milestone in the journey toward creating healthy eating habits.

12. The toaster

We know that some people are way too busy to be able to cope with all the everyday hassle and bustle, but this person knew what to do to make it easier for him.

13. The boy

This is surely not the kind of thing that would work with all kids, but it is definitely worth the try, and such a transition is very important for every toddler.

14. The adult

Image Source: Twitter

This is probably the biggest lie we have been told as kids, and it is surely why some of us tell this to their own kids as well. It is not even close to being true.

15. The kids

Kids are usually very excited about many things, and we guess that whenever they want you to go to them so they could show you something, this is what you need to tell them.

16. The meaning

Image Source: Twitter

This is surely one neat piece of advice that you could immediately start using, not to mention that you could come up with similar ones, too.

17. The pilot

Image Source: Twitter

We know that some of the most unusual pieces of advice you can get out there are pretty simple, and this post shows exactly what we mean.

18. The daddy

Image Source: Twitter

Here is how some self-irony can always help you, even if you speak to your children about the most trivial things imaginable.

19. The truck

Image Source: Twitter

Wow, this is something that nobody could be able to pull off, as it is the kind of genius advice that only special people can come up with.

20. The son

Image Source: Twitter

This is the kind of concept that some people would probably adopt and use all the time. We guess that it would always work like a charm.

21. The memories 

Image Source: Twitter

Parenting gives you the kind of superpowers that one could be amazed by, and this simple tweet suggests an example to make you believe in this.

22. The saying

Image Source: Twitter

Those who are usually busy with all the parenting activities we are aware of can sometimes lie to themselves and their kids using the same line.

23. The names 

Image Source: Twitter

If you have seen the early Austin Powers movies, you probably remember that Mike Myers’ character had Danger as his middle name.

24. The raccoons

Image Source: Twitter

Most parents are probably used to hiding from their kids when they nibble on sweets, and this is a must, as they never want to set a bad example.

25. The parents 

Image Source: Twitter

It seems that those who have been through a lot in their parenting journey have mastered a lot of things in their time, and this tip is surely one of the best ones we have seen.

26. The kids

Those who think that it is vile to lie to kids probably either don’t have any or think that they will be able to raise them without any lies.

27. The common lines 

Image Source: Twitter

This is a short list that could be used as a starter pack of little lies that could be used by every parent out there. We know that all of these work like a charm.

28. The chocolate 

Image Source: Twitter

Many people think that there are people out there who never deny their kids anything, but there are boundaries that need to be set.

29. The capital

Image Source: Twitter

This is surely something that most parents would love, but it is not a universal tip to use, of course. Still, it is one hilarious tweet.

30. The win

Image Source: Twitter

When some kids prove to be better than their parents at something, it seems the parents don’t admit the kids won fair and square.

31. The weekends 

Image Source: Twitter

Now, this is surely something that most parents would love to learn, but this is a trick that probably needs to be mastered to perfection.

32. The Oreos

Image Source: Twitter

Being able to keep Oreos off your kids’ hands is something worthy of praise, and it appears this person needs to write a book on parenting tips.

33. The lie 

Image Source: Twitter

Wow, being able to convince your kids that there are no toys at McDonald’s is something worthy of praise, and we can all agree not all parents would be capable of that.

34. The months 

Image Source: Twitter

The most important thing about telling a lie is the ability to back it up easily. Otherwise, it could easily get rough.
