i'm sure by now most of you have seen the video of a mother finding her son at a riot in Baltimore. She is angry he is there, throwing rocks at police, so what does she do? Slaps and hits him repeatedly in the face, and side of the head. He is seen leaving, and yet she still chases him down the street slapping and yelling at him violently. instead of people trying to stop her, they video tape it. And whats more disturbing is that since the video has gone viral people are calling her mother of the year. Mother of the year? Are you serious?
i am so deeply bothered by this, i can not even express it all. Let me get this right. You were mad that your son was at a violent riot, so you are violent with him to "teach him a lesson." Does anyone else see where this doesn't make sense. You are doing exactly what you don't want him to do. Do as i say, not as i do.
So,. . . . i disagree with her parenting method yes, but what has me even more upset, and scared for our youth, is that she is getting commended for this behavior! Comments under the video over and over state how she is a great mom. How we should all beat our kids when they are acting in a way we dislike. One comment actually said "can't we go back to when it was ok to beat our kids". OK? When was this ok? Ever?!
Now, there are extremes for every behavior. i understand this. But never does it say we have to accept it, or reward it. i can not change the world, and i know things will get much worse before they get better. But what i can do is say this is not ok. i don't have to condone this behavior or agree with everyone else. So i pray that you take time to pray for our nation, it's quite obvious we have right and wrong clearly mixed up.
(i will not post a link too this video because i want no more attention coming to it).
