Mom’s Back-To-School ‘Rules’ For Her Son Goes Viral And They’re Hilarious
No matter where you live, how much money you make, or how many kids you have, this mom will be relatable to you. A mom named Nicole Jackson just appeared on the ‘TODAY’ show because a video of the back-to-school rules is going viral, and she nails parenting! According to ‘TODAY’, the TikTok video went viral last year, but is making the rounds again because of its honesty and relatability.
Parents all over the country, including ‘TODAY’s’ Craig Melvin and Sheinelle Jones, are relating to the hilarious rules that Jackson has set for her 13-year-old son Kai as he heads back to school. Jackson, a mom and nurse in Ohio, outlines her expectations in the video. She explains scenarios every parent is dealing with when it’s back-to-school time.
In the video, she goes through issues that happen to every family. For example, she says that she’s not about to hear how her son has a stomachache when it’s time to go to school since he ate all kinds of sugary snacks and hot wings all summer. She says, ‘What we not gonna do is change up our stomach energy. You’ve been living on a diet of hot chips, chicken nuggets, and every popsicle and disgusting drink known to man, without one stomachache,” You’re not about to come to me talking about ‘my stomach hurt’ like you’ve got the intestinal tract of a geriatric Crohn’s patient.” LOL! Boom!
The Rules For Back To School
Although I don’t have kids, I totally get this! I was one of those kids that would ‘fake’ the stomachache. LOL! My mom didn’t go for it, neither did my dad. My dad would say, ‘If you can move and you’re not bleeding, you’re fine. Go to school.’ Jackson hits other issues that parents have to deal with once school starts back:
- Not being able to wake up for school when you were up silly early all summer long.
- Waiting last minute to announce projects, pictures, or have permission slips signed.
- Not eating lunch that’s made for you once you approved all the lunch box items before school started.
- Asking 55 times what’s for dinner and when will it be ready.
Jackson is NOT having her blood pressure rising once school starts! LOL! Her rules are showing us that all kids try the same thing, and all kids complain about the same things. I think she’s brilliant! Laying the law down up front makes sure that her son knows what’s expected of him. And since she’s a working mom, telling her son the rules before the school season begins is letting him know that she’s not putting up with any shenanigans!
Her video is so relatable that not only did it go viral last year, but it’s also going viral again this year. Part of the reason may be because of her appearance on ‘TODAY’ on August 31. Jackson and her son Kai were on the show and even though she’s not budging on her rules, you can tell they have a good relationship.
If you have children, this is a must watch! Not only can you relate, but you also laugh at Jackson’s delivery. Funny and informative!
