A mother was criticized for forcing her 14-year-old daughter to cut contact with her online friends. What's worse - she grounded her daughter at home.


She explained on Reddit that her daughter has not talked to any "real person" in five months since the quarantine began. She said her daughter has been spending a lot of time online. The mother added:

"I tried to tell her that online friends are not real friends and that she needs to talk to her real friends outside of the screen."

The teenager told her mother that she was upset with her school friends because they would leave her out of things, making her feel they didn't want her around them. The mother said:

"She could just confront them if they make her upset, not completely ditch them for a group of kids she met on a game."

But her daughter refused to oblige, saying that she and her online friends have been communicating for three years. But the mother dismissed her daughter’s explanation.

The mother told other Reddit users that she wanted her daughter to face the reality that there is more to life than being online. She was concerned about her daughter’s behavior.

Without any discussion, the mother forced her daughter to delete all her social media accounts including her gaming account. She demanded that her daughter to cut her online contacts.

Her daughter was very mad at her and cried hard, saying she missed her online friends.

The argument between the mother and her daughter turned intense. What added up to the woman's anger was that her daughter cussed during their argument.

She felt justified to ground her daughter at home. After punishing her daughter, the latter continued to hate her.

The teenager’s father, meanwhile, could not help but express disappointment with her wife. Given that all of them are isolated at home, the husband said his wife was making a big issue about online communication.

The Reddit community weighed in on the mother's predicament. One Reddit user said the mother was insensitive and appeared to be very controlling.

Another Reddit user wrote that the mother does not care about her daughter’s need to have friends after feeling unwanted in school. Another one pointed out that her daughter may be old enought to make decisions for herself.

The mother, in the end, realized her mistakes brought by the online community. She said she will make up to her daughter after what she had done.

The mother and daughter relationship is wonderful yet very complex. Here is another story of a teenager whose mother became upset because of her wearing a swimsuit.
