This mom's using a brilliant method to get her kids to do chores (every day!)

Maybe there's an easier way to get your kids to do their chores.

You can scold them, chide them or straight up ground them. But maybe there's an easier — and perhaps more effective — way to get your kids to do their chores.

The solution: bribery. Wi-Fi bribery, that is.

Take advice from this mom, whose message to her kids recently went viral on Imgur. Each day, she changes her family's Wi-Fi password. She gives her children the new password, but only after they've proven they've done their chores — with photo evidence.

And this mom's no fool. "Today's Wi-Fi password can be unlocked by texting a photo of a clean kitchen to mom," the anonymous (and possibly brilliant?) mother noted.

"Said photograph MUST contain one box of crackers on the counter by the stove (to prevent re-using any previous photos)."


"Thank you for playing," the note continues. "May the odds be ever in your favor. Love, Mom."

A mom who teaches work ethic with games AND "Hunger Game" references? The best.
