Mom Follows Teen Daughter Around School As Punishment Then Makes The Video Public On Facebook

By  | 

After Jeannie Crutchfield of Casper, WY,learned her teen daughter was lying to her and skipping school, she decided to take matters into her own hands.

The determined mother followed her 14-year-old around her school with a camera to ensure she was attending classes. “This is what happens when Ricki can’t act right,” Jeannie says.

Ricki is, of course, embarrassed when her mom begins shouting through the hallways. She tries to avoid her mother at all costs, but Jeannie is persistent. “You can slow down any minute now,” she tells her from down the hallway.

The decision to follow her daughter around school with a camera was a controversial one, and this clip went massively viral with over 12 million YouTube views.

Some viewers say she crossed a line, with comments like, “I understand that the child did something wrong, but that’s emotional abuse.” Others praise the mother for it, saying, “If you can’t respect the wishes of your parent, then you deserve punishment. This mom is doing her job by giving her a punishment.”

The confrontation ends up by the water fountain where one of her classmates tries to vouch for her, to no avail. “You can let go of the lie,” she says. “Make me come to this school cause you couldn’t act right.”
