One mum has revealed a rather interesting way of encouraging her kids to tidy up after themselves. Would you try this?

Mum Nadine King from Massachusetts first noticed the card that had been sitting on her hallway floor - directly outside her sons' bedrooms - for days, and she wondered how long it would take for them to pick it up.

She decided to try out the tactic, knowing that if they knew what was taped to the card, they'd definitely be quick to claim it.

Checking in every few days, Nadine revealed how neither of her kids - Theoron, 16, or Cam, 14 - had bothered to pick up the card.

Until one day, almost three weeks after she began the experiment, the note disappears, but the card remains on the floor!

Nadine said: "The objective of this is to see how long something can sit on the floor of my house before somebody picks it up.

"I believe the experiment went well, it proved my point and taught them a lesson."

This would certainly encourage kids to tidy up after themselves!

In other parenting news, we told you about the woman who captured the moment her baby bump 'dropped' on camera during a gym session.

TikTok creator and expecting mother Jaime (@weirdjaime) had been filming herself doing a kettlebell workout while 38 weeks pregnant when her baby belly 'dropped', stopping her in her tracks. 

Sharing the video to her account, Jaime confessed in the caption that she "almost peed [her]self" when it went down.

"He’s like mom chill I’m trying to nap in here 😤" another amused viewer added.
