When this daughter refused to tidy her room things got a little out of hand and resulted in this 'shattering' letter.
Ellie decided to make her feelings very clear when her mum was annoyed by her refusal to clean.
In a crumpled up letter, the nine-year-old told her mum how she was very disappointed in her reaction.
"Yes I agree I was mean to you and did very wrong.
"I am very sorry, but the fact I am poorly and wanted to rest has just flew out the window. I am sorry but the fact you said no-one would buy me really shattered my heart.
"At least now I know how ashamed you are of me. All my love, Ellie."
As damning as the letter sounds, Ellie's mum wanted to clear things up by sharing the piece with The Unmumsy Mom.
Posting a picture of the emotional letter, the caption gave us a little more information on the story behind it.
"Ellie refused to tidy her room, her mum got mad, Ellie declared she wanted to be sold on eBay (because she didn't want to be part of the family anymore) and in the heat of the tidying argument her mum said that nobody would buy her, which resulted in this...though shattered heart is now mended]."
And it seems Ellie's mum is not the only one dealing with a somewhat melodramatic child as a whole host of other mum's have been sharing their stories in the comments.
