Michelle Giggler took away her children's devices to prevent them from playing on them into the early hours of the morning, but she was outsmarted after they set off all the alarms in the house.

Despite the children scaring their mother just to get their hands on their devices, Michelle took to Twitter to tell the world her story and informed that her children are now all grounded.

She wrote: ''I collect all cell phones and iPads from the kids at night and keep them in my room.

''Last night those little ***holes all set alarms to go off at various times throughout the night.

''I'm impressed with their ingenuity and team effort. They're all grounded. (sic)''
