Parenting is hard. If you’re a parent, props to you. It takes a lot to take care of yourself, let alone a miniature human with no instruction manual. The good thing is that now we have the Internet, so parents can share their tips and tricks with each other rather than trying to figure it out on their own. Here are some awesome hacks to help you be a more efficient mum or dad!
1. Make Monster Spray to soothe your child’s worries.
A Dad walked into a drug store and asked for “monster spray,” a pretend product to help fend off monsters. While this may seem a little extreme for some parents (an alternative being to teach children that monsters aren’t real), it helps the process along far more easily.

Spray under the bed, in the closet, wherever. Bedtime will be a breeze. Well, maybe not a breeze, but less of a struggle.
2. Store pacifiers in takeout sauce containers to keep them clean.
This obviously won’t help when your toddler throws it on the floor, but hey.
3. Use a visual guide to prevent kids from taking too much toilet paper.
“You shall not pass!” is such a cute idea.
4. Make no-melt popsicles with Jell-O to avoid the mess.
Jell-O and juice will make your life exponentially easier. Who really wants to clean up purple stains from dripping popsicles?
