It may seem impossible, but here are some notes our friends at Bored Panda shared that actually got children to do chores! Written by some very clever mums and dads, they were left around the house to push children to do the improbably. Whether it’s withholding the WiFi password in exchange for washing the dishes or pre-answering your children’s morning questions so they don’t disrupt your sleep in, we think notes may just be the next genius parenting trick.
