This Mom Wrote A Lovely Note To Her Daughter Who Was Stressed About Math

"Parent of the year."

Posted on

"Not only is she my mom, but she is truly my best friend," she said. "Our relationship is based upon trust and love. She never asks me to do homework, asks for my grades, or do chores because she trusts me to do so."

Recently, Hannah had a math test. She spent the whole day and night studying, she said.

"My ultimate goal was to get the perfect GPA, a 4.0, so getting a B for me personally was unacceptable," she said.

After the test, Hannah didn't think she did well. She sent her mom a Snapchat saying she "failed." Her mom, knowing how stressed she had been, wrote her an amazing response.

She wrote: "I don't care if you fail your math test ... I don't care if you get below 1,00 on [your] SAT ... I don't care if your GPA is under 2.0 ... I don't care if you get accepted to Stanford ... BUT ... I care if you cry ... I care if you are stressed ... I care if you are unhappy ... I care when you get hungry even if you get hungry every two hours (I admit, it can get tiring feeding you constantly) ... But I love you."

Hannah said she thinks her mom wrote her the message to make her feel better about her grades.

"Even failing a test like this, my mom encouraged me with her positivity to try my hardest in school," she said.

Hannah decided to share the message on Twitter because she thought it was "too cute." People thought her mom was the best mom ever.

I told my mom I failed my math test and this was her response :')

They thought her mom's compassion was pretty incredible.

Need parents that care like this https://t.co/WSIBDBIDgt

And called her the "parent of the year."

A lot of people joked like, hey, where can we get a mom like that?

@imhannahcho shook to the bones. What universe is your mom from ??

Seriously.

@imhannahcho bruh I can't even ask my mom for a dollar without getting yelled at to get a job

"If I breathe wrong my mom gets mad smh."

if i breathe wrong my mom gets mad smh

Hannah said one of the most interesting parts of going viral is that a lot of people called her post fake because her family is Asian. She said, "not all Asian parents are strict and demanding."

"I'm glad to say that we broke free from those stereotypes and proved them wrong," she said. "My mom is the most wonderful role model I could ever ask for. She is the most powerful influence in my life and continues to love me unconditionally."
