Being a parent is a difficult task. Combine it with being a student and working a full-time job, and you’ve got quite the heavy load on your hands. The thing about being a parent is that most people who aren’t parents themselves don’t really understand everything that comes with being a parent.
From juggling different priorities to making all sorts of sacrifices, tons of things go into parenting that most people who aren’t parents can’t really grasp. That’s why when someone goes out of their way to help a parent, it can make all the difference.
That’s what happened to Morgan King, a 21-year-old mother, and student who was forced to miss one of her college classes to take care of her child.
She emailed her professor to explain her circumstances, and her professor’s amazing response has since gone viral—and for a good reason.
Morgan King attends the University of Tennessee. When she emailed her professor explaining her absence, her professor not only excused the absence but also encouraged Morgan to bring her baby to class if the situation ever came up again.
Morgan tweeted her professor’s response, and the tweet immediately went viral.
Morgan’s professor is Sally Hunter, clinical assistant professor in the Department of Child and Family Studies at the University.
When she responded to Morgan’s email, Morgan couldn’t believe what she was reading.
