Being a parent is hard, but being a parent to a kid who is on the phone 24/7, talks in #hashtags and was born into the world of selfies and social media, is something else. That's when you know you have to be super creative to make them do their chores - just telling them to tidy their room won't do. Bored Panda has collected funny yet genius parenting hacks that will make you wonder how you lived without them.

How do you make your kids do their chores? Share your parenting tricks with us in the comments or by uploading a picture.

If her mother wonders from where her daughter picked up bullying, she has only to look in a mirror. Go ahead and sell her phone, but public shaming is just as bad as the daughter's bullying - even worse, because parents should know better.

If you're old enough to go to a bar, shouldn't you be able to replace your own phone instead of asking your mom for a replacement?

At first I thought the dishes were real. Then I saw the paper framing them, so I thought it was a picture. Then I saw the brush sticking out of the frame and just about lost my mind. Then I realized the paper had a cut-out. I'm special.
