A strict Chinese mother recently went viral on social media for her practice of making her daughter take a breathalyzer test when she returns home after nights out to ensure she is not drinking alcohol.
A strict mother from Zhengzhou, Henan Province, went viral on Chinese social media for giving her 22-year-old daughter, surnamed Jin, a breathalyzer test whenever she comes home at night to ensure she is not drinking alcohol.
The widely shared Weibo video shows the mother waiting near the front door of their home when Jin walks in.
“My strict upbringing does not allow me to come home after 10 p.m., or even grabbing a drink before getting married,” Jin explains in the video.
Jin also shares that she is afraid of how her strict mother will react if she ever fails her breathalyzer test.
The viral video ignited discussion among Weibo users, with one user saying that Jin’s situation was “oppressive.” Other users, however, showed support for the mother’s strict parenting.
