Being a teenager ain't easy. But it helps when you have a super-awesome and supportive mom. The hearts of the internet have been collectively warmed by this loving note of encouragement a high school student named Hannah Cho received from her mom after she "failed" her math test (turns out, she actually got a B, which for a straight-A student can feel like a fail).
Hannah posted the sweet Snapchat message on Twitter and it went viral.
"I told my mom I failed my math test and this was her response," she wrote.
The note reads:
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.
Gahhhhhhhhhhhh! Did you go into a blackout reading this and accidentally call your mom crying? No? Uh, me neither.
After the tweet went viral, Hannah clarified that her GPA is actually about 2.0 and her mom's statements were hypothetical.
Hannah, I GET IT. As a recovering perfectionist and overachiever, there is nothing better than hearing from your mom (or dad or grandparent or whomever) that you are loved no matter what grades you get.
Twitter is LOVING this mom's message. And based on people's responses, it seems like her parenting approach is pretty rare.
And the same tactic didn't work for everyone.
But Hannah seems to know how lucky she is. “My mom is the most wonderful role model I could ever ask for," she told Buzzfeed. "She is the most powerful influence in my life and continues to love me unconditionally."
BRB gotta go call my mom again.
