One mom took it upon herself to teach her son a lesson he is never going to forget.

After believing her son didn't tip nearly enough as he should have, the mom sent him back to the restaurant to make amends for his poor tipping.

The mom posted the parenting moment to TikTok which has since been gone viral. Check it out:

Mom Danielle decided to give her son a very public lesson - which over 2 million social media users have since been privy to.

After Danielle's son Johnny returned home telling her about a recent restaurant experience, it's clear that this mother and son duo had some very different ideas about what they consider an appropriate tip.

Danielle shared the moment with her 23.5k followers on TikTok with the caption: "Legit he’s driving his a** back there."

It continued: "I'm so sorry [...] I raised him better than this."

Her son had gone on his 'first date' and reported back to Danielle that the service was 'good'.

He carried on explaining that the final bill for the date amounted to over $100 and he assured Danielle he had tipped 'a lot of money'.

The amount of money was clearly not satisfactory, his mother deemed.

In the viral clip, she shouts at her son: "You need to get my wallet, you need to get my Visa card, you need to go to the ATM, you need to grab a $20, and drive your a** back to that restaurant because on a $104 check, $10 is a s**tty tip."

The now furious mom added: "Do you understand me? Go now. I'm not asking, I'm telling...

"Do you know that guy may have kids, do you know on $104, he gets taxed on it?"

The son, nervously smiling throughout the entire spiel, had no other choice but to abide.

Following his mother's firm instructions, he makes his way out of the room saying: "Yes ma'am."

Screaming, Danielle added: "You don't know how to tip!"

The video amassed over 2.2 million views, over 326k likes and thousands upon thousands of comments.

Many people flooded in to praise Danielle and her parenting lesson.

One TikTok user posted: "Good job Mama! I have talked to my kids in detail about how they better tip good when they start going out."

"I love this!!! Teaching him right!!!" congratulated another.

A third added: "Thank you for sticking up for restaurant workers!"

After the video went viral, Danielle has since uploaded a follow-up video explaining her reaction.

She confirmed that Johnny did, in fact, go back to the restaurant and tipped the server $30.

Danielle has since spoken to BuzzFeed about her son's tipping faux-pas and why it bothered her so much.

While being a single parent at 20 years old, Danielle had to work three jobs to keep the family afloat.

She revealed: "Two of those jobs I was a waitress. It was extremely hard work, and some days, I walked off an eight-hour shift with only $30."

Highlighting that she was trying to get Johnny to 'understand' that the waiter was taking care of them and should be correctly compensated for doing an 'amazing' customer service job.

"I also explained that servers make most of their money on tips," she continued, "and it would be sad for this waiter to realise he made $10 on an expensive bill."

It's fair to say that he won't be making that same mistake twice.
