All parents would agree that teenagers can be a little hard to deal with on certain occasions due to all the changes they are going through. This is exactly what happened to Heidi Johnson, a mother of a 13-year-old who lashed out at her saying he doesn’t need to respect her rules anymore and should be independent.
So, his mother decided to teach him a lesson on independence in a pretty tough-love kind of way by writing him a letter with some strict but pretty on-point suggestions. She shared the letter on Facebook where she got really mixed reactions from people saying she’s a bad mother, to other’s praising her ways. Read it below and tell us what you think?
She then also shared her son’s response to her letter. The mother is explaining that she is not ashamed of what she wrote and would never let her son live on the street if he didn’t pay rent, but wanted for him as she says “to take pride in his home, his space, and appreciate the gifts and blessings we have.”
