A mother's controversial post on Reddit about throwing her daughter's clothes on the floor when they weren't folded correctly went viral. The post received mixed reviews from the Reddit community, but it wasn't until the mother saw comments on Twitter that it hit her that her actions were wrong. She booked a virtual therapy session with a psychologist who diagnosed her with OCD and has since had eight sessions with her. The mother is on a journey to become a better parent and has apologized for her actions. Read on to learn more about her journey.
