Oh, how times have changed.
A few years ago, a mom would have simply taken away her son's game controllers to get him to help out at home.
But what do you do if your kids' everyday lives are increasingly saturated by technology? Cut it at the source, of course! And that's exactly what this mom did. "Today's WiFi password can be unlocked by texting a photo of a clean kitchen to mom," reads the note shared on Imgur by user Aatrox94. "Said photograph MUST contain one box of crackers on the counter by the stove (to prevent re-using any previous photos."
The mom's genius method has since gone viral, amassing over 224 000 views.
"My dad use to take the router with him to work, little did he know my brother and I kept a spare one for such an occasion," commented FilthyNotes.
"My mom used to take the mouse away. Played counter strike with just the keyboard," shared perpskurp.
"My step-dad would take the power cables to my Xbox, little did he know that I kept the ones from our previous xbox."
