Jack White, a stay-at-home dad and artist from Cincinnati, Ohio, is the proud father of 2-year-old triplets: Jude, Stella, and Xavier. Kids will be kids, and this means bickering over the smallest things from time to time.
A Peaceful Moment With the TripletsDaily Mail
While he says his children are generally very well behaved, they often argue with each other when it comes to snacks. Since his children are only 2 years old, snack stealing is like the end of the world to them.
At home, there's not much he and his wife can do about it, aside from keeping them separate when it's time to eat. But in the car, it turns out there is something they can do to prevent the bickering.

Jack decided to set up walls between the triplets' car seats. This way they can't see each other and therefore there is little to no fighting over food.
Jack shared the picture of his invention on social media with the caption "and...no more fighting. The guys at the drive-thru said it was genius. A day in the life of triplets."
