If you want your children to do the chores, sometimes you have to bargain a little. When an extra dessert or twenty minutes of TV time just won't cut it, go for the bigger prize—the Internet. Parents everywhere now know the key to a clean kitchen.

When chore day arrived, this clever mom held the Wifi password hostage until the task was completed. In her note, she let her kids know that to complete the task, they must text her a picture of a clean kitchen, with a box of crackers on the fridge to prevent them from reusing an old photo. Nothing gets past her.

Once they've texted her the photo, the password is unlocked. It's genius. The photo was uploaded by Imgur user Aatrox94.
