GETTING the kids to do chores around the house – whether that means helping out with the hoovering or simply making their beds – can be a real struggle for many mums and dads.
However, one mum has shared the nifty parenting hack she used to get the kids to do the chores and other parents are raving about her idea.

The woman revealed she has created a mini “shop” at home, where her children are encouraged to earn toys and sweets if they do their chores.
The mum, from Australia, explained she lets her little one earn treats if she helps out around the house.
Showing off her idea on the Facebook group Kmart Hacks and Decor, she said: “Today we made an award shop (all items are from Kmart besides the box).
“The award shop is open from 1pm-2pm every day over the holidays for the little one.”

She went on to explain that her daughter can earn fake money by doing jobs like setting up the table for dinner, vacuuming, cleaning and other housework.
Her daughter is given toy cash and can choose whatever she wants to spent it on.

The fake money, rewards and setup only cost the mum $20 (£11.02) and will occupy her daughter for hours.
