Any parent will tell you the most boring task is nagging them to come down for dinner or to hurry up and get out of the bedroom and into the car.

(There are probably more, but this is at least top five.)

So, when someone offers you a hassle-free solution, it's almost as good as a kid-free holiday.

One can dream.

Posting her $15 "ultimate mum hack" on TikTok, one woman has changed how she gets her kids to come down to the kitchen.


Mum rings TikTok's bell

With nearly 600,000 likes, Arin Jura has set a new trend with her Amazon stick-on doorbells attached to each child's bedroom.

"I've got four kids and I hate yelling in our house," she reveals in her video.

"I bought these little doorbells and they are a game-changer.

"Each of my four kids has their own doorbell button in our kitchen and a chime plugged in in their bedroom.

"When they're upstairs and we need them to come down, we click the button and the doorbell rings in their room.

"They also know to come down in the morning when their doorbell goes off."

Arin shows the four white doorbell buttons stuck inside her pantry door, labelled with each child's name.

She presses them to flash a colour and ring the connected bell in the child's bedroom.

Fans love it

People have gone wild for this hack, loving the idea of swapping the dreaded shout to pressing a simple doorbell.

In fact, almost 5000 people have shared their amazement.

"Yelling through the house is my #1 top mom peeve," agreed one parent.

"Genius. Just bought a pack for my kids," another impressed user wrote.

"Game changer. No more beating on the wall lol," another said.

Some parents praised the flashing bell idea for its multi-sensory function.

"This is what I have done for my Hard of Hearing son! Life changer!" a parent wrote.

"That may be a great thing for my autistic son," a second commented.

You can recreate the hack in your own home by purchasing the doorbell from Amazon for under $25.

It currently is rated as Amazon's Choice in bell products and has nearly 300 rave reviews for its chic look and high functioning practicality.

"Best five dollars I’ve ever spent. They all come running when I ring the bell."
