32 Clever Parenting Hacks That Everyone Needs To Know

Anyone who has kids knows that you have to take the bad times with the good. These awesome hacks will make parenting easier, and I'm sure you can find a couple that will help both you and your kids smile a bit more. Trust me when I say that sacrificing a pool noodle is worth not dealing with any more slamming doors!

Trace your kids' feet so they don't have to come shoe-shopping with you.


Use a shoe caddy to hold snacks and activities during long car rides.


Old lotion bottles can be used as faucet extenders until the little tykes aren't so little anymore.


A butterfly clip is a cute way to make sure spaghetti straps stop falling down.


A cut pool noodle will prevent little fingers from getting slammed in doors.


If you make chores into more of a game, kids will be more willing to help out around the house.


A cupcake holder around a popsicle stick will keep little hands a bit less sticky on hot days.


If they fall out of bed at night, create a barrier by putting a pool noodle under a fitted sheet.
