Frustrated mom shows 13-year-old son who’s boss. The letter will crack you up.

Every adolescent goes through an “independent” stage. It may be easy to laugh in a few years, but bouts of disrespect and disregard can seem downright overwhelming in the moment – especially for a single parent.

A woman named Heidi Johnson has gotten lots of attention recently because of a “tough love” note she wrote to her son last week. It seems the 13-year-old had forgotten his roots after a meager amount of financial success.

 

Heidi posted this photo along with an explanation to facebook last week that has already been shared over 150,000 times.

The note reads:

Dear Aaron,

Since you seem to have forgotten you are only 13, and I’m the parent, and that you won’t be controlled, I guess you will need a lesson in independence. Also, as you threw in my face that you are making money now, it will be easier to buy back all the items I bought for you in the past. If you would like your lamp/lightbulbs or access to the internet, you will need to pay your own share of costs.

Rent – $430

Electricity – $116

Internet – $21

Food – $150

Also, you will need to empty the trash Mon, Wed, and Friday, as well as sweep and vacuum those days.  You will need to keep your bathroom clean weekly, prepare your own meals, and clean up after yourself.  If you fail to do so, I will charge you a $30 maid fee for every day I have to do it. If you decide you’d rather be my child again, instead of roommate, we can renegotiate terms.

Love, Mom
