As a teenager, you imagine your mum is just out to spoil your fun and your ‘love life’, but once you grow up you realise how wise and awesome she really is.
As someone who wasted precious A level study time ugly-crying over human pond life, I am fully prepared for my future kids to loathe me when I inevitably interrogate any aimless losers who dare cross my threshold.
And I think I may have found my future role model in the form of one American mum who was understandably not mad keen with her 16-year-old daughter bringing a 20-year-old lad home at 2:30am.
Now, bear in mind the age of consent in the US is 18 not 16, and you will get some idea of just how livid this mother was.
Taking to her daughter’s Snapchat after discovering a secret phone her older boyfriend had apparently bought her, the enraged mum delivered a barbed warning to her daughter’s friends:
Hey, everybody who’s on ****’s new Snap, and covering for her! Guess what? Mmm-hmm. At 2:30 this morning, I found ***** in her f*cking closet!
So unless each of you motherf*ckers want me to come after y’all and go to your parents and tell them the sh*t that y’all are doing, you better back the f*ck off. Do you understand? ‘Kay?
My kid’s not going down. She’s not going to be found dead in a ditch. She’s not going to be on f*cking drugs like half of y’all are. I’m f*cking over it.
So if I have to go to the school and call y’all out name by name, if I have to go wherever and call you out, I will. Okay?

As furious as this mum was with her kid’s mates, this was nothing compared to the vitriol she had saved up for the closet dwelling older boyfriend in question.
With the tone of a woman breathing pure sulphur, the mum raged:
The 20-year-old who’s f*cking my kid. She’s 16, you sick motherf*cker! That’s a felony charge. A felony charge you’re fixing to keep.
Wait until you have a 16 year old daughter with her 20 year old boyfriend hiding in a closet at 2:30 in the morning. Then come back and talk about this exact thing.

Why did it cut off right before I got the dirt on Emma's dad? What happens when they "come together"? What are they going to do?

A little rough around the edges. But mama’s heart and intentions are 💯 spot on. How many ruined adults wish their mom would’ve intervened like this before their mistakes got irreparable?

Your friend needs to find someone his own age and stop messing with a minor.

The protective mum’s rant quickly went viral after being shared on Twitter by a person who appears to be a pal of the boyfriend.
Along with two skull emojis, the friend wrote:
Y’all my friend got caught sneaking into his girls house and his gf’s mom posted this on her snap story..
Reactions ranged from approval to amusement, with many people admiring the mama bear’s proactive – if intense – attitude.
One person praised:
This mom… is a damn good mom! Anybody who thinks this is wrong IS what’s wrong with society! This is what parenting is… you f*ck with someone’s kid you better get ready for some consequences!
A little rough around the edges. But mama’s heart and intentions are one hundred per cent spot on. How many ruined adults wish their mom would’ve intervened like this before their mistakes got irreparable?
I am dead 😂💀😭 she really let them have it like that.

Well, at least her mom’s on top of her game. Like damn, you gotta be some kinda FBI agent or somethin’ to try and interrogate like that, that was intense

She did the right thing, I would have done the same thing. Just maybe not on Snapchat, because that’s on there for life….

Your friend is lucky he met Emma’s mom and not me. Your friend would be actually dead if I found his grown ass in my house with my 16 year old daughter at 2:30 am.

Boyfriends who buy you burner phones when you are 16 are rarely a good catch, and this teen will perhaps one day be super grateful for her mother’s interfering ways.
