Watch the Holderness family give their kids total control for one morning

I think all parents can agree that mornings are pretty much the worst part of back-to-school.

Mornings are never easy with kids in the house, but they're even more difficult when trying to get back into a routine after the lazy days of summer.

In this video, the Holderness family decided to flip the script on their kids and put them in charge for one morning. The kids probably thought it sounded like fun — until they had to deal with overly-tired, cranky parents. I laughed out loud watching it, and am seriously considering trying this with my own kids once the school year gets going.

What do you think? Would this work at your house?
