One mum has revealed her absolutely genius hack to call her kids downstairs for dinner without having to shout - in fact, she doesn't even have to open her mouth!

By installing doorbells in her kitchen cupboard, linked to speakers in her kids' bedrooms, Laura can alert her children to come downstairs with the press of a button.
Laura, who lives with her partner Adrian in Plymouth as a blended family with their children ages six, nine, ten and twelve, often shares tips and insights into her family life with her social media followers.
When it comes to the doorbell hack, Laura says she was inspired by her youngest child, who is autistic, non-verbal, and has sensory processing difficulties.
“That's why I came up with the doorbells so that I would not have to shout and hurt his ears," said Laura. "We were struggling to call the kids down without him grabbing his ears.
"We had an old doorbell from our previous house and we tried it out and it worked a treat so we put one in each of the three older children's rooms.
"It’s brilliant because the noise of the bell cuts through their headphones. It would also work for garages and sheds, or anywhere with a plug socket!"
Parent's are loving Laura's super helpful hack, and her video has already racked up 2.6 million views on Instagram.
After setting up her family page at the beginning of 2022, she quickly took off online and is feeling the love from her followers.
She said: "I was in a rut of being 'mum' constantly and wanted something to focus on!
"It’s a dream to be able to social media full time, my followers always seem to be laughing with me at my stories so it does brighten my day up!"
