WHEN kids misbehave, parents must come up with constructive ways to teach them why what they did was wrong.
One of the most common kinds of punishments parents turn to is taking away their children’s electronics – but there’s a better way.

A mother named Geisiane Martins, who goes by @geisianemartins8 on TikTok, said she came up with a punishment that works even better than taking away the iPad — and the internet is hailing her a genius.
“Parents, if your kids misbehave, don’t take their electronics away,” she began.
“Instead, take the charger away so you could watch the fear in their eyes as the battery slowly dies.”
Viewers found the idea brilliant: “I like it, that’s really cruel lol,” one person wrote.
“That’s awesome,” added another.
A third offered their own suggestion: “I turn the WIFI off.”
As for another useful parenting hack, a woman named Jacquelin Castillo, who goes by @momlikeaboss_ on TikTok, shared one trick that will save moms everywhere.
After someone asked, “Do you have any hacks for toddlers who like to play with toilet paper?” Jacquelin revealed her solution.
Responding with a video, she said: “Just keep a hair tie on the side of the toilet roll and slide it over to the middle when you’re done.”
Viewers were mind-blown by the simplicity of it:
“OMG yes! This is my current struggle so thank you,” one person wrote.
“This just changed my life. Thank you,” added another.
“OMG!! Genius! My daughter will be so mad now,” a third chimed.
