Lots of parents have a few tricks up their sleeves when it comes time to give their kid medicine, but most pale in comparison to one Facebook user’s hack.

Nissa Nani shared side-by-side photos capturing the result of one true mastermind. The mom in the photo outsmarted her daughter by making it seem like she was drinking juice from a juice box, when it was really medicine.

After emptying the juice box and cutting out the back of the container, the woman sneakily placed a measuring cup with medicine inside. Punching the straw through the hole at the top, the mom offered up her secret weapon to her toddler. Just like that, a major meltdown was avoided.

Hundreds of thousands of parents who stumbled upon the post have been in awe over the simple yet cunning move.

“Why didn’t I think of that. I have had this kid spitting it on my face all this time,” one parent laments.

“Game changer,” says another.

“Oh, the things you have to do sometimes,” another mom relates.

Behind every hack is a frustrated parent who knew there had to be a better way. Check out some of our favorite parenting hacks here.
