Mom Hacks - have you ever had a moment of kid insanity that has led you to develop a creating parenting trick? Perhaps it's the rebellious tweens attempting to take over your house or the toddlers that are coloring the walls and peeing all over the carpet. Yes, that's a sneak peek into what my house is like right now.
These off the wall parenting ideas, I like to refer to as mom hacks. It maybe a new way of teaching your child something, a way to keep your child still for 10 minutes or a bizarre punishment that may seem weird, but hey if it works - woohoo! Most likely your mom hack will not be found in any parenting how-to book and if you tell your family or friends about your creative solution - they may look at you like you are the crazy one, not your kids.
Mom Hacks = Creative Parenting
This summer, with 4 kids ranging in age from 1 to 10 years old, the mom hacks have come out in full force. If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen a few of my desperate solutions. I thought in the spirit of off the wall, creative parenting - I thought it would be a fun series to post about. My wish is that some of us crazy-type of parents can learn from other crazy parents on how they are surviving raising healthy and productive kids in creative ways.
I'm not here to judge - and hopefully you aren't here to judge either. If I've learned anything from raising 4 kids, it's that each child has their own personality and there is no uniform approach to how to parent (and that's when creative parenting helps!)
