A clever mum has come up with the idea to superimpose cockroaches onto the photo of her son who refused to take a bath in order to teach him a lesson.
As the anonymous mum, whose story was shared in a Facebook group called Mommie Mania, explained, she took drastic measures and made it look as if cockroaches were crawling over her son to convince him to take a shower.
“He didn’t want to take a bath, so I took a picture while he was sleeping and edited it with cockroaches. Now he takes a bath 10 times a day,” she wrote.
Soon enough, the mother’s story went viral, whereas the woman was praised for being creative in getting her son to wash up.
“Great idea, I might try it as well with my young one, he won’t take a shower until I drag him in the tub lol,” someone wrote.
“Omg I LOVE IT. But I’ll do it for his teeth bcuz he doesn’t like to brush them and he sleeps with his mouth open! Thanks for the idea!” another one added.
Some have also shared their own stories about how they tricked their kids into cleaning themselves up.
“When my son was about six he wasn’t very good at brushing his teeth. Well…we watched the Grinch and he had bugs crawling around in his teeth so I said if you don’t brush you’ll get bugs like the Grinch! He brushed all the time after that saying he didn’t want bugs in his teeth,” a user named Bonnie Lee wrote.
“Well I kinda did something [worse] than that… one day he walked in and saw me naked… he had never seen a girl part before he quickly turned the other way and said ‘mom what happened to you?’ I told him ‘when I was little I didn’t like to shower so it got dirty and sick and it fell off’ I may go to hell for this but he for sure goes shower everyday without me having to repeat myself…” Cici Loo added.
