Mom Rented Misbehaving Teen Daughter A ‘Pregnancy Suit’ To Wear At The Mall

Imagine your mom discovering that you have been skipping class and attending late-night parties. Now, imagine your mom going full-on postal with a profanity-laced Snapchat address to all of your friends who she believes are responsible for your poor behavior. This is what happened to Emma. 

Emma was an ordinary teenager engaging in extremely reckless behavior when her mom, Karen, learned of her daughter’s extracurricular activities. 

“Emma would tell me that she was going to the library with friends,” Karen says. “I always believed her. And then, I saw one of her alleged library pals in the grocery store one day. They were supposed to be studying, so I asked, ‘Did you and Emma end the study session early?’ She asked, ‘What study session?’ I knew then that Emma was lying.” 

Lies do not sit well with Karen. The mother of three told Emma and her younger sibling’s father, Roy, to be honest, and he failed. “I only asked for honesty. That was it,” Karen shares. “I didn’t care about the money, clothes, fine cars, or anything else he thought he could give me. I only wanted his honesty. He couldn’t even give me that.” 

Karen put Roy out of the house after he lied about working late. He was with his mistress during those fake late nights at the office. Where was Emma during those fraudulent library runs? Karen, determined to learn about her daughter’s whereabouts, started asking around. 

“I asked all of her friends. Jaime finally told me that Emma had been at her boyfriend’s house during every so-called library study session.” Karen was furious. 

Not only had her daughter lied to her about studying, but Emma also had a boyfriend. “She’s not allowed to be in a serious relationship until after high school,” Karen says. It was then that the concerned mother got an idea. 

Karen rented a pregnancy suit and made Emma walk around the mall and other public places while wearing the costume. No sign was necessary. Everyone who passed by the teen assumed that her promiscuity had led to an unplanned pregnancy. 

“It was to try to teach her that with actions come consequences,” Karen says of her approach. The mom did not stop at the bodysuit but continued down the path of public shaming by taking over Emma’s Snapchat and leaving a rant to end all other rants for the teen’s friends. 

“If she wants to go behind my back, then fine,” Karen says. “But I tell you what, she will know what it means to live with the consequences of her actions.” 

Perhaps it was the profanity-laced Snapchat message. Maybe the pregnant bodysuit really got through to her. In any case, Emma is doing much better these days. The teen no longer ditches school and has backed away from negative influences. It may be safe to say that her mom helped the teen find new friends. Emma’s old buddies wanted nothing more to do with her after her mom’s social media rant. 

“I’m happy that my mom did what she did,” the teen says. “I was mortified at the time,” Emma admits. “In hindsight, though, I was on a path headed for destruction. I am grateful that my mom had the courage to take action.

A Koala Mother Babysits Three Joeys

The parents who have several young children at home often talk about the challenges that they face. Caring for even one very young child is certainly difficult. Having three kids like this just multiplies all of the associated obstacles. Strangely enough, many animal parents don’t quite seem to have the exact same issues. Then again, it’s possible that koala parents might have some of the same problems. 

Very young children tend to squirm and kick whenever they’re held. Parents who have twins sometimes have a difficult time holding both of the kids at once for that reason. They might get used to it, but it still might pose a lot of challenges physically. These situations are even tougher on the parents who actually have triplets. There are koala mothers who have to care for three joeys at once. A koala mother at the Billabong Zoo was in that situation recently. 

Human parents have certain inherently advantages. The fact that humans are comparatively tall certainly helps. Human infants and toddlers are very small compared to their parents. Many animal parents are not as fortunate, including the koala mother at Australia’s Billabong Zoo.

While these koala joeys are actually capable of climbing trees on their own, they seem to prefer resting on her back. While they’re still smaller than she is, the size difference is actually relatively modest. The mother koala seems to be only around three times the size of each individual joey. Since there are three of them, she seems to be at least somewhat overwhelmed. 

The koala joeys can’t seem to sit still, and all four of them seem as if they’re struggling to get comfortable and stay that way. They aren’t resting peacefully on the mother’s back. Instead, they’re constantly shifting and stepping on her. As this is happening, she’s still trying to hold onto the tree. They almost look as if they’re scratching her at times, which is enough to make anyone feel sorry for the mother koala.

It’s an entertainingly adorable image, but the mother koala still seems to be struggling to keep up with all of these joeys. She’s being remarkably patient, especially when people consider the situation overall. These koala joeys were not actually hers. She was just looking after them.

This sort of thing might surprise a lot of people, since koalas are not especially social animals. In fact, plenty of relatively unsocial animals will care for babies that aren’t theirs. They’ll still have the caregiver instinct, which can be helpful in a zoo environment. 

Koala joeys are actually very strongly connected to their parents emotionally. They spend months in pouches, and aren’t even remotely independent for a full year. It takes them even more time to become truly independent, and they’re still very attached to their parents from that point onward. This koala is not actually their mother, but they have the same sort of bonding instinct that her actual children would have. She’s acting as their mother, and that appears to be good enough for the joeys. 

Even though they could spend time on the tree alone, many of them are not going to want to do so. Koalas are generally very inactive animals. The mother koala in particular just seems to want to rest, and the joeys are not making that easy. Still, as energetic as they are, the joeys still settle down some of the time. 

It almost looks as if all four of them are going to fall any second. Still, all koalas are adapted to this sort of situation, and they’re astonishingly good at staying on trees.
