The Boy Who Sued His Mother

Disagreements between parents and children are common and can lead to some almighty rows and fallings out.

In most cases, they are resolved and later laughed about and/or brought up as examples of awful parenting once the child involved is older.

However, in some situations it can turn nasty, leading to serious rifts that take years to heal.

And in some cases, they can prompt a ludicrous overreaction.

In 2017, a 15-year-old boy decided to sue his mother.

The reason? She confiscated his mobile phone in an attempt to get him to study.

It's not known how a teenage boy had the means to hire a lawyer to sue his mother.

It's also not known why the lawyer decided to take on such a spurious case, but they did.

You'd think this happened in America, home of the bizarre lawsuit, but no, it happened in Spain.

He was so outraged he took legal action, accusing her of mistreatment.

The lawsuit even went as far as seeking a nine-month jail sentence over her parenting.

The case was heard in the city of Almeria, and, unsurprisingly, the judge ruled in favor of the mother.

The court ruling said: “She would not be a responsible mother if she allowed her son to be distracted by the mobile phone and fail to study.”
