Mom of Six Crucified by TikTok After Sharing Her Household Rules

A mom of six recently took to TikTok with a rundown of her household rules she keeps to tun a tight ship with so many heads under one roof, and her video has been met with a slew of opinions. 

Utah mom Sharon Johnson shared a now-viral TikTok video breaking down the essential household rules she sticks to that help her manage a large household. This makes me aound really put together and strict but really we’re just always barely keeping our heads above water, and all of this helps with that! #bigfamilylife #momlife #motherhood #momtips #momsoftiktok ♬ original sound –

“Tech time is only Tuesdays and Thursdays. You get an hour, and you have to check out the laptops so we know who had them last just in case they get lost or broken,” she says. 

“Bath and shower days are Sunday and Wednesday. If you need a bath in between that, then absolutely. But otherwise, that’s good enough,” she says.

And while her list continues, her comment section is loaded with angry users who are beside themselves over a twice-a-week bath schedule. 

In Johnson’s defense, she did emphasize that if anyone needs to bathe outside of the designated days, they are more than welcome to. But for the sake of simplicity and ensuring she knows everyone is at least decent, the two designated days are a must. 

But the internet didn’t choose to take into account the mom’s flexibility and instead came at her guns blazing. 

“If someone told me I could only bathe TWO days a week… I’m throwing hands…,” another noted.

“I can’t imagine only having two baths a week during the summer months. 😩,” another wrote.

“EVERYONE NEEDS A DAILY BATH why is this so hard to understand 😫” one user commented.

Despite the frenzy, Johnson kept her cool and reminded viewers “AND AS NEEDED…You people are wild. Also…this is what every doc recommends for kids,” she responded. 

In another comment, Johnson explains that the family has only one working shower for eight people and they live in a very dry climate with “sensitive-skinned people.”

Beyond the bath time rules that the internet was NOT okay with, Johnson went on to detail the rest of her household rules.

“The kids get an allowance. They get a dollar for every year of how old they are. This means I don’t have to keep track of who I bought, what, when. I can just be like, ‘Okay, do you have any money?’”

Johnson is also a proponent of “No Sleepovers.” Instead, she opts for “late nights.”

“Then I don’t have to decide whose house is safe. It’s safe enough,” she says.
