The mother-daughter bond is a powerful thing. In fact, according to science, it's even more powerful than we thought...

A TikTok video has gone viral after a mother stood up to a man following her daughter, the video is intense!

The mother-daughter bond is one of, if not the strongest of all parent-child bonds.

Brain chemistry is apparently responsible for this.

While the bond between fathers and daughters and mothers and sons are built on love, there isn't always a strong empathetic bond.

This is according to a study published in 2016.

Thirty-five families took part in the test, which found the part of the brain that regulates the emotions is almost identical between mothers and daughters than any other.

What does this mean?

Mothers are more likely to understand you when having a heart to heart. This is because she can imagine herself in your shoes. This could also explain why you both butt heads sometimes.

It has widened the understanding of mental health conditions.

A professor of psychiatry, Fumiko Hoeft said: “Anxiety, autism, addiction, schizophrenia, dyslexia, you name it—brain patterns inherited from both mothers and fathers have an impact." So if we can spot patterns in a mother's mental health, this could help create preventative treatments.

Mothers and daughters clearly have an unbreakable bond.

One mother's video has been shared after she confronts a man for staring at her daughter...

Julia Frank a twenty-one-year-old posted the Tik Tok.

Her mother saw the man staring at her. She said: "A glance is one thing, but an obvious stare is another."

Frank told her mom that the man was making her feel uncomfortable.

The man apparently looked directly at Frank's butt when they walked past him.

The man didn't say much when he was confronted.

Frank said: "My mom said, 'Excuse me, sir, that's my daughter you're looking at.' He didn't say much other than, 'Mind your own business, lady.'"

Frank's mom confronted the man again.

The man followed Frank, her sister, cousin, and mom down every single aisle before her mom intervened.

Ibarrondo is my hero.

In the video, you can hear her say: "You dirty old man, stop staring at my f***ing daughter's ass."

Frank and her mom repeatedly tell the man to get away from them.

via: TikTok

This is how the man responded: "Dress like a whore, you should look at a whore."  Wow...just wow.

Frank was actually wearing a baggy T-shirt and sweatpants...

Even if she wasn't wearing something baggy, he had no right to say that.

They told a worker about the situation and he was escorted off the premises.

Frank was asked what she thought about her mom, to which she responded: "She has raised me to be a stronger woman, so I'm able to teach my kids one day how to be strong as well. She has taught me that no matter what happens, it's always important to stand up for yourself." Love it!

Frank wants to remind women to take precautions to stay safe.

She said: "If you feel uneasy in a public place, make your way to someone who can help. Don't go out to your car alone without watching your back. Always be aware of your surroundings."  Some guys really need to keep their opinions to themselves!

Of course, Julia Frank's mom isn't the only mom who stands up for her kids. Some of these stories about parents doing what they have to do for their kids will make you stand up and cheer...

When I was waiting for my mom outside of my elementary school, I ran into my meanest teacher. She brought up bad test scores and blamed my lack of obedience because I was just a stupid kid, and continued to badger me until my mom pulled up. I walked over to her car crying, she asked what happened. I said nothing. She took one look at the teacher and got out of the car and yelled, "what the f*ck did you say to my son?!" They got into fight and ended with my mom saying, "See what happens if you talk to my son like that again!" Most badass thing my mom has done up to date, and the teacher didn't bother me again for the rest of the year. - Shadyboi

A dad's gotta stand up for beards.

When I was in grade 10 I grew a beard. Got called into the principals office and was told to shave it off or be suspended. Went home and told my dad. Next day, my dad took me back to the principal's office where we were told it was "school policy" — no beards. Dad said, "Show me where this is written." Principal couldn't do it, as it was written nowhere, but insisted it was so. My dad then said, "I know at least three teachers here who have beards. When they shave, my son will shave. Failing that I will see you in front of the district school board if you would like to explain your position. Go to class son." Kept my beard. - reddogger56

"No one's going to make fun of MY daughter and then later on drive around."

Some senior girl in high school was making my high school experience, THE BEST YEARS OF MY LIFE, a tragic nightmare. Mom decided this human equivalent of a blood clot needed to be taken down a few notches. One evening, under the cover of darkness, my mother walked to this girls home (we lived in the same neighborhood) with plastic toy animals (hippos and elephants) and the early 2000s equivalent of Gorilla glue. Mom preceded to COVER this girl's brand new car with land mammals. Finishing touch was a wrap around key job. Fantastic. Thanks mom. - rinarobs

It's not often that the other dads get it.

I was 10, playing on a little league team. There was some gathering with all the junior teams plus some of the older boys. One of the older boys thought it would be funny to trip me and make me eat some dirt. So I take a tumble, and the next thing I see is my dad lifting this 14-year-old kid off the ground by the collar, screaming in his face. The kid's dad comes over and demands to know what's happening. Dad puts the kid down, explains the situation, and the kid's dad swiftly cuffs the kid across the head several times. Pretty bad-ass on the part of both parents, I gotta say. - starryknight

Love a dad who stands up for his kid, even when they screwed up themselves.

I was about 11-ish years old and was hanging around with some friends. We were leaned against a car talking BS. Then, the owner, who later I found to be known as a very angry dude, approached from behind me and grabbed my arm with a lot of strength and said something that I didn't hear because I was very scared. I just heard: "You can tell your father!" I ran home and told my dad, and we went back and my dad told me to stand back as he talked to the guy. I didn't hear much but I could clearly hear my dad saying: "I don't care about your reasons, if you touch my son ever again, I WILL put you down, do NOT dare me!" He said it in such strong way that the guy lowered his head. I followed my dad home, and even though he was mad at me, I was happy and felt safe. He was awesome. - LPagote

Dads' insults are *fire emoji*

When I was 12 my older neighbor would bully me over AIM and my dad would sit with me and think of comebacks to send her. It’s pretty stupid but at 12 I thought it was badass! - hallucinojenic

No matter what you've done wrong, losing Laser Zone is too high a cost.

One time a kid tripped me over because I shot him in Laser Zone. My dad did not approve of the snarky teen tripping his nine-year-old son and got the owners to ban him (after he yelled at him). - ChristOnABike122

Sometimes you gotta protect your kids from their own bosses.

When my sister was 16, she used to work after school at a local department store. One manager was maybe 25 to 30 and a real asshole. He wouldn't let anyone leave or count up their drawers until their shift had already ended, so everyone was always late. One shift, my sister knew my dad would be waiting in the car park to drive her home and would be worried and angry if she didn't get out on time, so she asked if it was okay for her to leave, or at least go out and tell him she'd be late. He said no. She finally finishes 40 minutes late and is in tears since she's only 16. My dad sees this and asks what happened. So he marches right back inside with my sister and 13-year-old me trailing behind because I wouldn't miss what's about to go down for the world. He tells my sister (in a super loud voice) to point out the manager that wouldn't let her leave and she does, and right in the middle of the store while he's serving a customer, my dad ripped him a new one, telling him to never, ever do that again and that he should be ashamed of himself, going on a power trip and making a 16 year old cry. This arrogant jerk folded like a wet rag and was super careful to never make my sister stay back over time after that. - coffeeandarabbit

And sometimes you have to defend them against... the circumstances?

I dropped my earring in a storm drain in Italy while we were staying at like a military hotel. My dad, without missing a beat, said, “you can do anything you need with everything you have." He thinks for a minute, makes a signature dad expression, and goes and finds a marshmallow and a stick. He melts the marshmallow a bit with a lighter and gets my earring out of the storm drain. It. Was. Awesome. - peacefroggyfrog

Mama bears do not take into account the size of their adversaries when they get on their hind legs.

When I was in high school, I got fired from a sh*tty job, but one that I really liked. The GM was a tall, muscle-y meathead, and he brought me into his office, and there were three or four security guards standing in there. He proceeds to accuse me of stealing $100 from the register. I get upset, crying, and told him I'd never stolen anything in my life. He tells me that I'm fired, there will be police action, and that I will be escorted from the premises. I call my mom from my car blubbering like a fool. When I'm driving home, I see her flying past, on the way to my former place of employment. Come to find out, she got in my bulky 250 pound boss' face and threatened him with legal action if he didn't make it right. Nothing came of it, but I found out a few years later that he got demoted to maintenance worker. - Emileahh

It's so rad when your mom's got your back.

My drama teacher called me a "blonde bombshell" in front of the class as an explanation to why he gave me a certain part in a play. I told him to "fuck off" and stormed out of the class. He called my mom and told her what I'd said. Her response was, "If she said that, she must of had a real good reason." The incident was never spoken of again by my teacher. - GenJonesMom

Dads hate frame-up jobs.

A girl I was in school with said I (a 15-year-old boy at the time) grabbed her butt because I had embarrassed her and she wanted to get back at me. Before the assistant principle talked to the witness to learn I really hadn't done it, I was called into the office and literally interrogated. The principle had already decided I was guilty and was going to nail me to the wall. I refused to answer his questions and kept answering all his questions with "call my dad." He wouldn't. Finally, after I physically threatened him and threatened a lawsuit he let me call my dad. All I said was, "Dad I'm in really big trouble. They are saying I did something really bad I didn't do." He just said, "Don't say anything I'll be right there." It couldn't have been more than 5 minutes before my dad showed up. He parked on the grass next to the building, leaving the door open and engine running. To say he was not happy is a massive understatement. He opened the principle's office door told me, in a very calm and even tone, I could go back to class. The principle started to protest and he just held up his finger. I could hear him ripping that man a new asshole from 40 feet down the hall with the door closed. The superintendent showed up half an hour later and the principle was almost fired. He retired that year. The girl had to apologize to me and admit she made it up. - Aeladon

If them's the rules, the rules need to change.

I had gotten suspended from school for a day over nonsense and in order to return I needed a parent with me. Both of my parents worked, so my grandma said she would do it. The next morning she walked with me to school. We saw my VP and he told me I would have another day of suspension because my grandmother didn’t count? That didn’t sit well with my parents. The next day I remember walking in MOM and DAD behind me, and they were furious. Before my VP could even explain the “rules," my parents were coming for his neck, saying he wasn’t right, that he kept education from me because he wouldn’t accept my grandma. Let’s also add in that she was an overweight woman who really shouldn’t have been walking so far, but she just wanted to help me. Yeah, my VP knew never to do that again and sincerely apologized for having me lose another day just because my parents couldn’t make it. - Sw33t__T00th

Imagine seeing an angry dad reach into a car to grab you.

I was 17, and long story short, a teenage boy in a car with his friends, made a crude comment as I walked by. My dad heard it, reached in the car window, grabbed the kid by the front of his t-shirt and was trying to drag him out of the back seat... all the while yelling in the kid's face. The kid's father showed up out of nowhere and started trying to fight my dad. But then the father found out what his kid said and made him apologize to me. - mollytheblindbarmaid

A calm mom can still defend her burly, brawling boy.

When a group of three brothers were picking on my younger brother on the school bus, my Dad told me to take the school bus and sort it out. After the eldest one hit my brother, I hit him hard in the jaw and he ran home crying. Their mom came around to our place to complain, and my mom, a beautifully quiet lady that attended church every Sunday without fail, made a pot of tea and listened to her complaint. Then, she calmly said, 'Well, your boys really are little sh*ts you know. I pray for them regularly. Finished with your cuppa?" - beepboopbriz

Sometimes, parents have to defend their kids from the other parent.

I wouldn't really call it defending but my dad slapped me and my mum slapped him SO much harder and told him if he ever hit his kids again she'd chop off his arms. - Sarcastigasmic

And sometimes, they have to defend them against wild creatures.

Dad and I are in the kitchen. A wasp flies in. I hate stingers; I get really really jittery near them. Dad takes out his handkerchief and Indiana Jones whips the wasp out of the air. Then he throws it away and goes back to making his coffee. - robocpf1

Is any scream more terrifying than a mom's pterodactyl scream?

While on a humanitarian trip to Africa with my mother and a few others, a few guys started yelling at us. It was around six in the morning while we were waiting for our bus, and they were getting closer and closer. My mom basically let off a pterodactyl scream and told them to f*ck off. They did indeed, f*ck off. I was very proud. - AvocadoGuacamole

A good dad knows what's important.

My car broke down in college and I desperately needed my dad's help, but his boss wouldn’t let him off. So my dad walked off the job and came with his truck and trailer the very next day. He quit his job on Thursday, picked up my car on Friday, we fixed it together on Saturday/Sunday, and he had a new job by Monday afternoon. My dad is still at this job 15 years later. His old boss still checks in with him every few years asking my dad to come back. - metela

This is pretty satisfying.

I was at a water park with the family around age 12 and some 20-something tried to snatch my rented inner-tube. My dad grabbed the dude by the arm and gave him a few seconds to give it back. The guy started saying something along the lines of "there are plenty around, just go get another one" despite the fact that you had to put a deposit down on them and pay a small rental fee. My dad immediately started open-hand slapping the shit out of the douche. After about what seemed like 10 solid palm-slaps he relented and dropped the inner-tube and immediately started bawling. - dzien_dobry

Sometimes parents have to defend their kids from cliffs.

Me and my family were hiking by a cliff on holidays. I slipped and while I saw my death come, my dad grabbed my hand and pulled me back on the cliff. We all had to sit down to chill out and realized what just happened while my dad just shrugged his shoulders and kept walking. - Kwerz

Defending your kids can also mean defending them from missing out on important experiences.

My dad let me miss my standardized testing at school to see Nine Inch Nails and Soundgarden with him - raaadmads

Mean kids are the worst.

My dad dropped me off to kindergarten and when we were lining up to go to class and a couple kids were making fun of me (I was an easy target — I was really short and skinny). He yelled at them and scared them off for me. My dad's one of those guys that is tough-looking and he rarely shows his emotions towards anyone so it's a nice memory of my dad sticking up for me. - [account deleted]

Another mama bear shows her teeth.

When my brother was about nine or ten, he was being bullied by a kid that was quite a bit older (around 13 or 14). My brother rode his bike to school one day, but my mom didn't know and went to pick him up after school. She pulled up across the street from the schoolyard and sees my bro getting his bike out of the rack. The bully walks up and pushes him down and starts kicking and punching him. My mom silently gets out of the car and strides across the street, grabs this kid, and picks him up off the ground by his shirt. She shook the ever-living sh*t out of him, raised him up, and proceeded to slam him on the ground. She stood over him and told him if he ever touched my brother again, she would end him. My brother never got bullied again. I watched the whole thing go down from the car. I was around 7 or 8 at the time and remember thinking "This is probably what it looks like when someone gets attacked by a bear." - Fanglyfish

Kids deserve a safe place to poop.

My dad started a bathroom brawl at Notre Dame stadium over a decade ago when a guy cut me in line at the bathroom when I was about to sh*t myself. He messed the guy up, the witnesses all cheered, and my dad told me not to tell grandpa. As soon as we returned to our seats I tell grandpa "dad beat up a dude in the restroom!". My grandpa loved it. - depressedtime

It's super handy to have a biker neighbor.

I was about 12 and some much older teenagers tried to grab my bike from me when I was riding through a park. I managed to sneak out and ride through a creek before heading home. When I told my dad what happened, he grabbed the neighbor (a biker dude) and said "Go back to the park and stand your ground." Uh, okay. So I go back, they see me, and they surround me. I'm freaking out a bit, but when one said, "get off the bike" I said. "No, it's mine and you know it." Another one gives me a shove, and I hear from behind me, "Now your MINE MOTHERF*CKER!!" Dad right hooked the one that shoved me while the neighbor went after the biggest one in the group with the "if we're fighting, I want you." They made it clear you mess with his sons, you mess with all his family. I was never bothered by them again. - HanzG

It's similarly inspiring to hear about parents defending other parents.

A long time ago some guy that worked with my mom at a grocery store would flirt with my mom. Not really a big deal but he started getting very rude about it and touching her so it turned into a big deal. So once my mom told my dad about it he decided to go talk to the guy. My dad goes to the grocery store and sees the guy trap my mom in a corner and start groping her. My dad walked over grabbed the guy by the throat with on hand picked him up off the ground and slammed against the wall. Told the dude to never even look at my mom again or he would fuck him up. Then he slammed the guy on the ground. The guy left and never came back to the store. - IQ33

What principal okay'd this?!

There was a teacher who hit my younger brother. He was not a bad teacher by any means, but he hit the children "to make them learn." All the parents knew about it, but since he has a reputation of being a good teacher they were okay with it. My mother made it clear to him at the beginning of the year that her son shouldn't ever be touched. Even if other parents were okay with it, she was not. The teacher did hit my brother a few months later, and my mom took it to trial. He was getting fired (potentially prison as well) unless she canceled it, so he came to our home begging and swearing that he will never do it again. She made him promise that he would stop hitting any of the children. - KuroOni

Now they're going to have to turn their head when they back out.

When I was like eight or something some jerk in a lame car started doing donuts in the parking lot of our apartment while my brother and I were playing around nearby. My dad was working out around the corner. Barefoot. He walked over to the parking lot, walked up to the car which had stopped for a moment, approached the drivers side door and kicked the goddamn side view mirror clean off in one smooth strike. Then he leaned down and said "Get out of the car, or get out of the parking lot. Now." Dude left promptly. - phrotozoa

Sometimes you have to stand up for your kids against the psychological uncertainty of hostile nation-states that have been on the brink of nuclear destruction for decades.

My dad ended the Cold War. He was studying over in Russia during the late 80s, right around the end of the war. One day him and some of his friends from the States went on a huge party boat with some Russians. A local news crew was there and they interviewed him; Russian women in either arm, of course. He said something along the lines of "us Americans don't want to keep this feud going, we love the Russians. We want to be allies and partners!" Apparently Gorbachov was watching this live feed and later wrote in him memoirs "I saw American and Russian students getting along, having a good time and being friends. I then decided to call Reagan and begin talks of peace." So now my dad likes to tell people he ended the Cold War. - crzystve42
