23 Hacks That Will Make Your Parenting Life So Much Easier

You might have a life again with all the time you will save.

If you’re not organized and have little sense of time, parenting is an extremely hard task for you to undertake. That’s saying something, because parenting for organized couples is hard enough as it is. You lose track of time taking care of your children’s incessant needs, their multitude of questions, and wiping their tears. But do yourself a favor and read up on these 23 parenting life hacks that will help unburden you of some of the load you carry.

1. Glue over the holes in your bath time rubber toys.

After a certain period of time, your kid’s bath time play pals will start looking a little worse for wear. To combat this, fill the hole in them with hot glue to prevent them from growing mold. This also makes them more durable.

4. The craft room should have lint rollers.

Kids should come with an alarm button that sounds off whenever they get excited and are about to throw glitter around, because in my experience, it has happened way too much, and I’ve been unprepared most of the time. Not any more. A lint roller should save you from glitter Armageddon.

5. Buy a shower hat.

The shower hat, apart from always being in style, has the additional benefit of not allowing water to get into his/her eyes, which means less tears to worry about.

14. The dot system of inheriting and organizing clothes.

For each article of clothing your kids own, add a dot in the order of seniority. The eldest gets one dot, the second gets two, and so on. This way, your kids know which clothes are theirs. As they get too big and pass their clothes on to their siblings, add another dot. This will keep things simple and organized.
