The stress of nagging your little ones to take a bath is a thing of the past for this mom.

An unidentified mother wrote in to Facebook page Mommy Mania to share how she got her son to start taking more baths and her method is  hilarious!

While her son was sleeping, she took a picture of him and photoshopped it with cockroaches crawling all over him and showed it to him when he woke up. Genius, right?

‘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.’ -Genius Mom of Boys.” The page posted. 

Comments from other moms with similar stories came flooding in the comment section. “Thank God it was an edit!” One comment read.

“I’m going to do this the next time my granddaughter says can she skip her bath.” Another comment read.

“I got my son spider man foam soap and cool bath tub toys. My son loved playing in the tub... he got clean & was a happy kid. He did grow out if this & we had a hard time getting him to take showers or baths again until he got into high school. Now he has a girl friend & showers voluntarily for like an hour. Haha. No bugs needed. Creative problem solving... but not cool if he tells his friends there’s bugs...”
