On the surface, Heather and Kaelyn look like the average, happy mother-daughter pair.

So, what does Heather ask Kaelyn to do to ease her mind?

It also works well because Kaelyn is clearly not afraid or timid when it comes to getting her picture taken.

They might find it a bit burdensome initially, but they’ll love you for it when they’re older. Much older. Here it is…

She makes her daughter fire back a selfie of who she’s with and what she’s up to at that moment, making sure it jives with the story she gave her mom before she left!

She asks for the thumbs up to make sure Kaelyn isn’t just sending any old random selfie. But the interrogation and mind games go even deeper than that.

Just in case Kaelyn had a picture of her and her friend giving the thumbs up in the dark already, for some reason.

Her original tweet blew up, and people had a lot of feelings about her mom’s unorthodox parenting technique. See if they’re with her or against her!

Brilliant. Only a mom who was a really bad teen would think to add that little flourish.

And, just as importantly, making sure they’re safe. But that didn’t stop people from complaining.

But it seems like her mom was just having a little fun with her daughter and didn’t think she was actually lying. Kaelyn and her friend look like they’re having some fun with it in their selfies too.

But, there are worst things in the world than having protective parents…even if taking random selfies to appease them can feel like a bit much.

Although it was just as hilarious.

For better or worse. Every era of technology has its blessings and curses. It just depends on your perspective!

One day, you’ll appreciate it, but as a teen, it’s…just the worst.
