TikTok is in awe of this 6-year-old who wakes up early to do housework before school

A 6-year-old boy’s highly disciplined morning routine is going viral on TikTok

The mom, @shopping666, behind the account, which focuses on her family’s life in her “smart home,” shared her son’s daily regimen. The little boy wakes up before school each day to do chores and make himself breakfast. But his household duties go well beyond making the bed or putting away toys. 


My baby is six years old, and he gets up at six every day to cook for himself, do housework and then go to school❤️👏👏#GEICOGiveHappy #shopping666

“My baby is six years old, and he gets up at 6 a.m. every day to cook for himself, do housework and then go to school,” the mother wrote in a caption

The little boy got out of bed and immediately got to work. He removed the lint from his clothing for the day, got dressed, brushed his teeth, then made a breakfast of dumplings and eggs. Next, he did the dishes, cleaned the bathroom, did some laundry, made his bed, swept the living room floors and helped his mother soak her feet. Finally, he cleaned his sneakers, took out the trash and headed to school.

The 6-year-old did more than some adults do before leaving for work. People were impressed with how disciplined the child was at such a young age, but others worried it might be too much for him. Despite the polarizing response, the clip received over 29 million views.

“This kid did more in one day than I have done all year,” a user wrote

“Six is too young, poor thing. Hope he has time to be a kid. But they always say teach them while they’re young,” another commented

“That kid’s credit score has to be in the 800s,” someone joked
