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?

Will dad also wear dresses and skirts? Let the girl wear what she wants and teach her that her attitude towards herself and others matters more than a piece of fabric.

This is stupid. Never deprive your kids of a safe home. Locking them out only teaches them that you're a shitty parent who they cannot depend on. Posting a photo publicly only proves that point.

Yes, it is sad that teens post this kind of thing, and that is what social media is encouraging, but if you look at what part of her face is showing, she looks so sad. Parents, your kids will make mistakes, and some of them will be worse then others but DO NOT shame them on the internet or in front of people, it will make them hate you and go against your wishes just to spite you.
