Woman Has Genius Way Of Getting Her Kids To Be Quiet At Night

Woman Has Genius Way Of Getting Her Kids To Be Quiet At Night

Parents of young children will know that its important to take any bit of respite you can and by whatever means possible, even if that means telling white lies to your kids.

One crafty mum has revealed the trick she told her daughters in order to keep them quiet, by convincing them that their glow-in-the-dark would only charge if they lay not the floor in silence - and parents everywhere are taking it to the bank.

Jessica D'Entremont's hysterical photo of her girls Hannelore, three, and Emma, four, who she shares with husband Eric, as they lay on the floor looking at the ceiling while their pyjamas 'charge' under the lights has since gone viral for its pure genius.

The 33-year-old mum-of-two had been desperate for some peace and quiet after a long weekend, as the her girls continued to charge round the house.

Jessica then cheekily told her daughters that for in order for their glow-in-the-dark pyjamas to work, they'd need to be charged under the lights.

Now, the littlens lay on their bedroom floor every night for 10 minutes waiting for their pyjamas to glow while their crafty mum gets on with last minute chores.

Jessica's hack - which she posted on Facebook - has since racked up over 115 thousand shares and 190 thousand likes online.

Speaking about the night she came up with the idea, Jessica, from Boston, Massachusetts, said: "I had to actually force them to get up to go to bed.

"It's a great way to get some housework every so often. Nothing bad can come from it.

"I had to stop them and tell them to go to bed after that. They're happy to do that every night now for five minutes to let their pyjamas 'charge'."

Hannelore and Emma have sensory processing disorder, meaning their brains are often overstimulated by their surroundings.

But now, instead of being full of excitement right before they're meant to hit the hay, the little girls enjoy laying down to 'charge' their pyjamas, calming them down in the process.

"They are very interested in it and very serious. They stay like that while I enjoy the silence. It's really sweet.

"Everyone loves the idea. One of the things I've loved is that most of the comments are positive.

"As long as it entertains them, I'll be keeping the pyjamas readily accessible for me to pull out on more challenging days."

Jessica has since began putting the pyjamas in a dark drawer during the day so they lose their brightness, making the charging trick all the more convincing for her clever girls.

"I put them away in the drawer in the day so they lose their brightness a little," she explains.

"They fully believe now if they lie beneath the light and they're very still that the pyjamas work a bit better.

"With most children it's a struggle to settle down before bedtime. They can be glued to their screens.

"The girls get very tired and with all the sensory problems, they have a hard time calming their bodies before bed.

"We tried to make it a bit of a game, but afterwards they do go to bed more calmly. They're too young for meditation but it's along the route."

Jessica, we applaud you.
