You don't need to part with your old baby crib when you can just recycle it with this nifty idea.

As your kid grows, their crib can be turned into a children's workspace or craft shop where they can create, write, and draw to their heart's content. The surface can even be turned into a chalkboard, and it's perfect if you want to teach them some math and spelling before they go to Kindergarten.

If you're sick and tired of your kids eating too much candy, then this should keep them away for life.

Whatever you do, don't throw that empty bag of soybeans away. Use it to hide all your mini Snickers bars in the fridge or freezer. Trust us, no kid in their right mind would ever go anywhere near a veggie bag, like ever.

Do you ever have those moments when your kid won't go to sleep unless you're there, but you're tired?

If your kid wants to draw and scribble all over the walls, then give them a space of their own.

Jessie Stansberry from Texas put her cranky, two-year-old son inside an empty cardboard box, and give him two crayons. In the end, she got 45 minutes' worth of peace and quiet, and her boy got to write and draw as much as he wanted.

The only way to teach your kids discipline is to color code it with this nifty parenting hack.

Create a list of each color highlighting different responsibilities. Then color code the clock, so that your child knows what to do when the hand on the clock is on each color. This not only teaches them discipline, but gives them time management skills, which will be so useful as they get older.
