Amelia said that on Tuesday she was having "a really hard day" and that she called her mom, Jeanmare, about it.

After speaking with her, the college student reminisced about a time when she had a more angst-filled relationship with her.

"My mom and I have always had a power struggle," Amelia told BuzzFeed News. "I just hated when she would tell me 'No.'"


"I thought 'Oh gosh, we all know that I'm not an angel,'" Amelia's mom said of reading the tweet. Jeanmare said that her daughter's tweet made her emotional. "My eyes just filled with tears," she told BuzzFeed News.

For her, it was the best type of development. "To know that you're doing well, as a parent, there is no better news than that," she said.

She hopes that other moms are granted the same moment of affirmation. "I hope for every mother to get that affirmation one day—that they've done well."
