Maralee Bradley from Nebraska has put a twist on a classic parenting tool, and parents from all over the world are hailing her as a genius.

Instead of rewarding children for behaving well, the chart rewards parents for their reactions to their children misbehaving.

She explains it all in the post: 

"Around Halloween I kept seeing this picture go around that listed different candies, their calorie count and what kind of exercise you should do to burn them off. Um, no thank you," she wrote on Facebook.

"Motherhood is hard enough without candy guilt. So I whipped up this little chart to put a bit of a different spin on it.

"Motherhood is hard, candy is delicious and maybe it's okay to sometimes give ourselves a little reward for being awesome mums. No amount of candy can 'burn off' the stress and frustration of your average day of motherhood, but I'm not going to say it doesn't help. This is entirely tongue-in-cheek, so I hope you enjoy it in the spirit it was intended."
