Did you see the video and were you surprised?

You better believe it. I am sure he is going to be very embarrassed by this but hope he uses it the right way.
kids who are hit have slower brain development and are more likely to be anxious, angry, and delinquent. when they grow up, they are more likely to be obese and have cardiovascular disease and arthritis.
She should be commended for standing for what is right even when one of her own has been done wrong; she has enough sense and morals to know right from wrong and I am certain those policemen are going to have to answer soon.
I do know what you mean Bob; I would have a hard time calling out a child of mine like that but if faced in this same situation;I am not too sure. Whether she shows up on talk shows or writes a book is another story but was only good in this mess!
She did MizB and I think from his reaction he probably is basically a pretty good kid...and not a hoodlum which I am sure is all thanks to Mama!
Yes I would say she just did what came naturally! lol
You got that right!
She could be charged with child abuse here, too. She isn't out of the woods yet if some do-gooders have their way. I hope nothing happens to her.
'Child abuse' might be a bit o.t.t., if he's old enough to be involved in a riot. The charge might not stick, as 'public misdemeanour' might.
Many of these doing damage are not even from this town! They are just taking advantage and I hope many are caught and made to pay. Who knows who maybe even sent them in for political reasons.
What that boy was doing was clearly not protesting. Lawlessness should never be confused with or put into the same category as one using their right to peacefully protest.
Some mamas are just demonstrative and they don't care who knows it. lol
Well for what he did I am glad for what she did. I think she said very well there are better ways to solve problems than to wipe out your neighborhood. She made a good show that said a lot even if she was hasty; it was her son.
Ahhh but have you ever raised a rebellious teen? Once they get into middle and high school they learn from their PEERS and not their parents. There is a difference between abuse and just discipline that most of those who do not raise kids cant c
I thought I had the best kids alive until they become teens! It only lasted a little while on my son but my daughter never outgrew it!
Same here Jackie. My youngest does not talk to me anyonre and has blocked me from her life and she's in her 30's for g-sakes! My oldest she was a short timer and she is the bes mommy of her own 2 boys! Good Luck when they become teens!
... "when they become teens.' (Debra Allen) they are still our children and we are still their parents; from the early age we had everyday breakfasts and dinners together, on weekends three meals together, sharing,days events, trusting, truth, love
So what is your point Michael?
...continue : our sons knowing our standard they never did disappoint us, making right decision; respecting others-being respected; youngest born in this country at age 13 told us, he made decision to tell the truth always, so he can live on happy +
Lucky you, but many are not that way.
It was clear that in that specific case, her eye for an eye approach got his act together quickly. He has also stated on camera that he knows what he did was wrong, why his mom did what she did, and that he won't act that way again.
Exactly Empress10. All came out the way that it should have. He is set on the right path now and that is what a mother and/or father's job is in raising children to be responsible adults.
What that boy was doing was clearly not protesting. Please do not confuse lawlessness with one's right to peacefully protest.
and two wrongs don't make a right...right?
That is right, but it was not wrong for this mother to do what ever necessary to save her son's life when she thought he was in danger of presently or, as consequence of being part of current rioting, in danger of future death (or loss of freedom).
I meant that these protesters should know vandalizing and stealing etc is not the right way to protest. Not if they want to be taken seriously as adults and humane.
I'm hoping someone will encourage the young man to speak up on behalf of his mom, perhaps interviewing him (and her), give them the opportunity to improve their circumstances/education, and be spokespersons for what is right.
That would be great. I imagine his friends may rib him pretty bad and that could have a negative outcome if it is not faced and talked out.
You are an exception. Most kids don't give a hoot about their parents' disappointment.
she was such a dedicated and wonderful mom, always happy and you just did not want to be the one to make her unhappy..she was exceptional,one of a kind.
Beautiful! Sounds like we need more moms like her.
So true; making kids think they are perfect and anything they want is OK and expected is ridiculous. When the real world hits them we cannot always fix it! We better make them strong and smart enough to take care of themselves.
