Mum-of-five Becky Crandley has taken parenting to the next level. She has taken matters into her own hands after her sons school contacted her about his rude behaviour.
Becky gatecrashed her sons year 8 maths class as part of a surprise experiment. She said that her son has been showing signs of bad behaviour in the last year.

Fed up Mum Becky gatecrashed her sons class.
After receiving emails from his teacher about two recent incidents that landed him in water, Becky knew it was time to take matters into her own hands.
"It all started last year with his behaviour change, it's part of growing up I think, but it's his rudeness and disrespect I cannot stand.
"I have had phone call after phone call about his behaviour.
"He's had an untold amount of detentions and isolations but nothing seemed to bother him.”, she said speaking to Kent Live.
After being in contact with the school, she offered to come and sit with him in the last lesson of the day on Friday, which was maths.
The school accepted, and so at 2pm the brave mum walked through the school gates with one mission on her mind, to do what she always said she would.
The mother-of-five added: "I constantly threatened that I'd sit with him in school if needed, and he always laughed it off.
"Since they've been back this year I've had several phone calls already.
"So when his maths teacher emailed last week and said about an incident, I said to her I would join him.
"He didn't have a clue, and he was very embarrassed for sure, I was introduced as his mum."

Becky also took to social media to share her story as a stand against unruly teenagers.
She said she felt it was necessary as "today's children are getting worse by the second."
"I think more parents need to act upon their children's behaviour," she added.
"It's scary to think what we will leave behind one day."
