I tried to respond to this while at the car repair shop but didn’t save it.
Click on photo to watch this mother do the right thing!
Alot of folks applauded that mother for publicly “attempting” to discipline her son for I guess participating in the looting. But see that’s the problem: (not criticizing her)
1. Where was his father
2. When you discipline your kids privately, they want embarrass you publicly
My response: I will discipline my child publicly and privately. I tell my son all the time that he is gonna get it if he publicly embarass me so until the time comes he is good but if and when he should do it, publicly
I applaud her because I would have done the same thing! You lost me when you say, “she attempted to discipline her son for what you guess participating in the looting.” Well she was successful in getting him out of the area where there was an ignant moment going on and it appeared to me that he was involved since he had his face covered up.
So why should I criticize her for that?
You say where is the father? Why did that matter at that moment? Irrelevant! So if the father had been there, would one ask where was the mother? Irrelevant! The main thang is that the mother was there and did what I would have done be man or woman.
How could one not discipline the child at the time and location where they were acting out? First of all he was trying to hide his face but his mom recognized him and for that it let me know that she knows her child and I commend her for that.
I will discipline my child publicly and privately. I tell my son all the time that he is gonna get it if he publicly embarass me so until the time comes he is good but if and when he should do it, publicly and privately I am going to deal with him.
Point:When Godly fathers take their rightful place and raise there sons the right way, they will understand the difference b/w a protest and looting. Me and my sister were not perfect, and neither was our mother, but we NEVER would think about embarrassing her in public b/c of the discipline she has instilled in us in our home. Sorry my mind is just set up different. #realist #nosugarcoat
My response: I totally agree fathers need to take their rightful place and raise their sons but I want to add and daughters. I tried to take my rightfjul place to help raise my daughter but her mother moved 4 hours away trying to keep me from her. So I take these kinds of conversations very serious and get very emotional on the fact that I have been there done that. Now unfortunately my wife and I have raised our son all of his 16 years so I am in his life. However I recognize and understand that some fathers are not in position to be in their children lives because he chooses not to because he just don’t want to be, because he is married to another woman and in a relationship with another woman and the mother knows it but still chooses to have sex with him knowing that she could possibly get pregnant. The woman don’t want him to be involved because she get ignant. Well the child suffers in all situations but for me it is never the child’s fault but the mother and the father.
I don’t know where this young man’s father is and I don’t care. What I do care about is this mother took it upon herself to do what she did not knowing how he would respond. She was brave because so many children will fight and even kill their parents.
My friend I agree with you on a lot of things but I am not the one who will talk about a person behind their backs when I don’t agree with them and will make it known publicly. We have had a conversation about growing up without a father however I grew up with a father and been out of work almost a month without pay taking care of him since he has been in a car wreck.
I took time off work when my mom was terminally ill and I stayed in the hospital with her every night for nearly 2 months and went to work the next morning. And then when the doctors say that had done all they could do, we had to take her home. We took her to her sister’s house and set up a room for her. I stayed there every night for about 2 months and I went to work the next day until she expired.
So when it comes to family I can relate and I encourage men to be in their children lives and I don’t associate with deadbeat dads unless we are going to talk about what they need to do. However like I said I recognize and understand that some women don’t want the fathers in their children lives, they just want the money. Well I encourage them to pay child support and don’t get caught up in her mess.
Today my daughter has been brain-washed by her mother and step-father because they were successful for keeping me from having a relationship with my daughter. Well I turned it over to the Goodmaster and as long as I know I have done all I can do, it hurts but it is well with my soul.
I could go on but again I applaud, commend, love this woman for doing the right thing at the right time. I will not criticize her for doing what was right. However the only thing anyone that knows me know that I would not be going on the TV talking about it. I would write about it.
My brother again I love you and I know your heart but I can’t agree with you on this one.
Dang wish I had saved it when I tried to respond on my phone because it would have been short, but like I tell folks my video camera, my phone and my laptop is my weapons and my camera and my laptop is more powerful than my phone.
