A MUM has revealed how she only lets her children watch cartoon TV if they walk on a treadmill.
The woman said she tricks her kids into exercising using her parenting technique – but it has divided opinion.
The woman shared a video to TikTok showing her 11-year-old boy getting his steps in on the machine while enjoying a TV show.
She wrote: “I only let my kids watch cartoons if they’re walking on a treadmill.
“One day my 11-year-old walked 16 miles.”
The woman’s video has racked up over 2.6million views, and many parents praised her idea.
One said: “You win at parenting! That’s genius!”
Another added: “Well excuse me while I add a treadmill to my Amazon cart.”
However, not everyone was convinced of her idea and said she should let her kids “relax.”
One said: “They will talk about this in therapy one day.”
And one agreed saying: “That’s lowkey evil.”
The mum hit back at any criticism, saying: “The volume of people who think allowing a high energy child to choose to walk while watching cartoons = trauma and abuse, is astounding.”
