A mom recently wrote a letter to her 13-year-old son, because the kid didn't want to be told what to do.  And it's going viral because she AGREED . . . if he'd just pay half the bills, including $430 in rent, $150 for food, $116 for electricity, and $21 for Internet.

"Also, you will need to empty the trash Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, as well as sweep and vacuum those days.  You will need to keep your bathroom clean weekly, prepare your own meals, and clean up after yourself.

"If you fail to do so, I will charge you a $30 maid fee for every day I have to do it.  If you decide you would rather be my child again, instead of roommate, we can negotiate terms.  Love, Mom." She says he started doing chores again after he read it.

She has been getting lots of opinions on her parenting.
