This mom has a simple hack to prevent kids from slamming doors and I’m applauding her genius.
You know when kids are throwing a tantrum or get really upset and they just want to storm off to their room and slam the door?
I swear it sets of an internal alarm inside of us parents and it just puts everyone in a bad mood.
Or how about when your toddler finds it funny to lock themselves in a room? (I cannot tell you how many times my 4-year-old daughter has done this lately).
Well, this mom’s hack using a pool noodle is here to save the day…
In a now viral TikTok video, mom known as SuzyQ online (@ocwarrior19) shared her favorite parenting hack to prevent her toddler from slamming her door.
“I have a little stinker that likes to lock and slam her door, so this is my cheap way to solve that problem,” SuzyQ explains.
In the video, SuzyQ simply cuts up a foam pool noodle and attaches it to her toddler’s door. It’s that easy!
It keeps kids from slamming doors and keeps little fingers from getting squished. Plus, it’s renter-friendly and doesn’t cause any damage to the door!
You can simply pick up a pool noodle from your local Dollar Tree and get cutting!
