A mom's funny TikTok performances are getting lots of online love as her son dives into remote learning.
Jamie Plafker Danville, California, posted five videos on her TikTok page as her mother Deb delivered “morning announcements” to her 17-year-old brother Max on the first day of his senior year.
"We were making jokes about all the funny things that would happen during this online coronavirus school time," Jamie, 22, told "Good Morning America." "I started writing them all down and said, 'We have to put this on TikTok."
"I wrote a little script and said, 'You’re the actress,'" Jamie added. "And so, "Principal Mom" was born."

In one of the videos, Deb can be heard saying the following over a speaker to Max, "Welcome student, to the first day of online school. This is your principal, mom. Just a reminder: lunch today is whatever you make yourself."
Millions have viewed Principal Mom’s daily announcements for Max -- many of them parents and teachers commenting how it’s brightened their days.
"It started out as a joke in our house and now we've warmed people’s homes," Deb told "GMA." "It’s really nice."
As for Max, who also appears in the TikTok footage, he’s not loving the attention, though big sister Jamie said he’s "been a good sport."
