A parent has gone viral on TikTok after sharing the hilarious way she managed to trick her son into doing some housework – and it was all thanks to the WiFi name one mum seems to have found a “genius” way to do just this.

In the video her son walks into the living room and asks his mum what the WiFi password is, to which she replies: “Clean your room first.”

The boy sighs and turns around and walks back out towards his bedroom to do just that.

An hour later he comes back realises his mistake.

He tells his mum he’s finished cleaning his room and asks again for the WiFi password. She replies: “Clean your room first, all lower case, no spaces.”

The mum chuckles at the amusing situation.
