Mums and dads are often getting the names of their children mixed up, but in China one mother has come up with a new way to make sure she can tell the difference between her sons all of the time.

The mother has four identical boys and even she has sometimes trouble seeing the difference. She has come up with a new solution to get over the problem. The boys have numbers shaved into their hair based on the order of their birth.
