Imagine your teenage daughter having to walk home in the dark and cold because her school confiscated her phone, which also held her bus ticket. That's exactly what happened to Clem, a 17-year-old student, when her school implemented a new policy that kept confiscated phones for four days. Her mom, however, wasn't having any of it and decided to take matters into her own hands. But was she right to challenge the school's policy, or was she just being a 'Karen'? Let's dive into the story. 😮

Was Mom Right to Fight? 🥊

So, after her daughter's phone was confiscated and she had to walk home in the dark, this mom decided to take on the school's new phone policy. She demanded that her daughter's phone be returned after school so she could get home safely. After some back and forth, the school agreed to her demands. However, her husband initially called her a 'Karen' for her actions, but later apologized. So, was this mom right to stand up to the school, or was she just being overprotective? Let's see what the internet has to say... 💬
