Mom's 'Tough Love' letter to son goes viral


An Australian mom's note to her son went viral this week after she posted it on Facebook, calling on 13-year-old Aaron to stop acting like a "roommate."

The mom, Heidi Johnson, later explained that the disagreement with her son stemmed from the fact that he was making a little bit of money off of his YouTube channel and bragged about it during an argument.

So what did she do?

Johnson, who used an alias in her first post, explained that he'd need to start cooking and cleaning, and pay a $30 "maid fee" if he refused.

In a follow-up post, she said that she initially only wanted family and friends to see the note, but mistakenly marked it as "public."
