Moms are professionals at finding everything without trying and worrying. Of course, along with worry comes the wave of important questions, “Where are you? Who are you with? When will you be back?” One mom’s trick for keeping track of her daughter sent lightbulbs off over the heads of mothers everywhere.
Heather Steinkopf is the mother of 18-year-old Kaelyn Demmon and a viral sensation after Demmon posted her tactics on how to locate the teen on social media. The exchange between the two was quite funny.
Demmon and her best friend, Stevie Holbrook, were hanging out on Friday before Demmon left for college when Mom asked the age-old question, “Where are you?” before requesting several forms of proof.

The mom requested several specific selfie photos. Things got even funnier when Steinkopf thought Demmon had Photoshopped her BFF into the photo and requested she get on the girl’s back and give a thumbs up.
The selfie strategy didn’t come out of the blue, explained Demmon. “There’ve been times when I’ve said I’m at Stevie’s when I’m at a bonfire or something,” she said.
After Demmon posted the screenshots to Twitter, others jumped in with their own hilarious mom to daughter screenshots and stories.
Steinkopf admitted that she believed Demmon after the first photo but couldn’t resist the back and forth. “I knew she was where she said she was,” Steinkopf said. “But it was more fun to keep her doing different things.”
Well played, mom.
