The genius new way to get your house clean and your kids disciplined.


Can we get a round of applause for this time-efficient mum?

When her kids played up recently, she didn’t just send them to their rooms: nope, the savvy mum-of-three set her kids a points-based challenge they had to complete in order to get “ungrounded.”

Mum of Ashley, Ryan, and Adam, whoever you may be – we salute you.
