Picture this: You’re a parent and your kids are acting up. You try everything in the book, but nothing seems to work. Enter “Ginger Jack,” a dad who’s come up with a genius way to get his kids to behave: by making them cringe!

He calls it “malicious intent” gentle parenting, and let’s just say it’s not for the faint of heart. Basically, Ginger Jack uses his affection for his wife to get his kids to do chores without giving him any lip. It’s hilarious, and it’s working. Here’s how it goes down: When his kids start giving him attitude, he starts hitting on his wife. And not just any old flirting – we’re talking the kind that makes his kids cringe with embarrassment. “Hey there, sugar. How you doing, baby girl?" he says. Predictably, his kids start groaning and shrieking with disgust over their dad’s affections. It’s brilliant. And it works!

“Are we gonna adjust that attitude?” he asks them. “YES!” they reply. “Are we gonna clean without crying or fighting?” he asks. Again, “YES!” Then he continues, “So, the next time I instruct you guys to do the dishes without fighting, you will do the dishes without fighting, or I will hit on mom in front of you, loudly,” he says. “I could start kissing. I love kisses.” Then his kids hilariously beg, “Dad, please we’re sorry!” It’s next-level gentle parenting, and it’s successful! If you have kids old enough to be totally disgusted by being affectionate with your spouse or partner—whip out some “malicious” flirting and watch your house sparkle and gleam. As Ginger Jack’s wife giggles in the background, we can’t help but laugh along with this dad’s hilarious antics. And let’s be real, who wouldn’t want to try this out on their own kids? It’s the perfect combination of gentle parenting and playful teasing.
