We’re not quite sure about where the sits on the line between genius and evil, but here we are.

A US woman has been copping heat for her household’s TV-watching rule for her kids.

In a video shared to TikTok, the woman shows exactly what her kids have to do to watch TV.

“I only let my kids watch cartoons if they’re walking on a treadmill,” the video’s caption reads.

“One day my 11-year-old walked 16 miles.”

Yo, that’s more than 25km.

And while some people in the comments lauded the mum for her genius, with one person going so far as to say that “You win at parenting!” others were not quite so impressed.


One commenter called the rule “low-key evil” while another claimed that her son will be talking about the whole thing in therapy one day.
