This Mom Requested A Lot Of Photographic Evidence Of Her Daughter's Whereabouts And People Can Seriously Relate

"Send a selfie of the two of you both giving me the thumbs up!"

Posted on

Here's the teen with her best friend, Stevie Holbrook, also 18. Holbrook told BuzzFeed News that Friday night they were hanging out. "We were having a movie night at my house before I left for college," she said.

Demmon's mom, however, was not so easily convinced of this, so she requested a selfie. Steinkopf told BuzzFeed News that she requests selfies from her daughter infrequently, so the teen ~never knows~ when she's going to have to send one.


The teen told BuzzFeed News that her mom's selfie strategy has gotten her into trouble previously, and that she — like most teens — has lied. "There've been times when I've said I'm at Stevie's when I'm at a bonfire or something," she said.

Steinkopf said that she believed her daughter after the initial photo but requested more pics that night for her own entertainment. "I knew she was where she said she was, but it was more fun to keep her doing different things," she said.

When Demmon shared screenshots of the text exchange on Twitter, people really related to it.

I think it's safe to say my mom doesn't trust me
