“TikTok made me do it: MOM HACK,” Arin wrote in the on-screen caption.
“This is the ultimate mom TikTok-made-me-do-it hack.
“We have four kids and I hate screaming in our house. I bought these little doorbells and they’re a video game.”
The mother explains that she has a doorbell button for each child that she keeps in a cupboard in the kitchen.
The bell is set up in their bedroom, so instead of having to shout their name, she just presses a button and the doorbell rings in their room.
“They also know to come down in the morning when the doorbell rings,” she continued.
Arin said she got hers for $15 from Amazon and is delighted with the results.
“There has never been a better #momhack,” she said. “These little $15 doorbells have made our home so much more pleasant!”
Since being posted, the video has been liked nearly 700,000 times and received more than 5,500 comments from impressive viewers.
One said, “Screaming in the house is my #1 mom”, to which Arin replied, “Mine too!! And screaming promotes telling so I try not to do it.”
Another wrote: “My kids will take out the battery and I will press that button with some ferocious rage.”
“I just got myself a bull. Some families need something stronger,” joked a third.
Another said: “We had something like this put up in our house in the ’70s! Not fancy! Wrapped up in six siblings. Worked like one. fate!”
Others shared how their families told each other it was time for dinner, with one person saying, “My mom just hit the ceiling with a broom handle. This is great.”
And another user added: “I visit or notify via Alexa.”
