As if school wasn’t tough enough already.

The parents of six-year-old quadruplets in China had numbers shaved into their children’s hair so their teachers could tell them apart, the Daily Mail reported.

Before Jiang Yunglong, Jiang Yun-Shao, Jiang Yunhan and Jiang Yunlin started their first day of school in the southern boom town of Shenzhen, Tan Chaoyun and her husband paid a barber to shave the numbers 1, 2, 3, 4 into their hair to avoid confusion.

“My sons are identical, even to me,” Tan was quoted by local media as saying, ABC News reported.

“I could only tell the difference between them by having different ankle tags on them before they turned 18 months old.

“Even now, their father can’t tell which one is which. Sometimes, he punishes the second one for something the third one has done.”
