If you’re out of ideas on how to get your kids to clean their room, use this mum’s trick of getting the tooth fairy involved.
Instead of leaving a letter with some cash under her child’s pillow, the mother, who blogs at Non-Stop Mum, decided to change things up a bit.
“I came by tonight to retrieve your tooth and leave your payment, however because of the condition of your bedroom, I had a horrible time getting to your bed safely,” the letter read.
“I was unable to locate the tooth pillow. I will have to come by on a different night.”
The letter continued: “Perhaps you can take the time between now and then to properly clean and organise your room.
“I bet if you ask your mother nicely, she will even help you do it. Much love, the tooth fairy.”
It looked as if parents were keen to use the trick themselves, after the letter had more than 10,000 likes.
“Wow, I will be using this the next time a tooth has been lost,” one person wrote. “Such a fab idea.”
