I’m the first one to admit that I do not utilize Siri on my iPhone as much as I should. But after discovering Hey Siri website that lists out literally every single command (and variation on those commands) that Siri can do, let’s just say I’m upping my game.

With the crazy back to school season right around the corner, I’ll take as much help as I can get. So, I read through the list of  the 489 Hey Siri commands (not to mention the 1204 variations) and created 12 Siri commands just for parents that you might find helpful.

And sorry. “Hey Siri can you please make my kids stop whining?” doesn’t work. Trust me, I tried.
