One mom is getting both praise and criticism after sharing her "mean mom" moment on Facebook.

Jaime Sullivan took her three kids, ages nine, seven and five, to a Dairy Queen.

She said their teen server handed each child their ice cream, but none of the kids said 'thank you' or even smiled. So, Jaime took their ice cream away and threw it in the trash.

She said when her kids stopped crying she explained to them that if they were lucky, they would work a job like that some day, and she told them they need to be more polite.

Her post has been shared more than 35,000 times.
