Texas Mom Praises Other Mom For Punishing Son For Talking Back
A Texas mother has gone viral after she applauded another mother in a store for punishing her son for his attitude. Sometimes when you're a parent, it's nice to just hear some words of encouragement from other parents who understand how rough it can be. One mother went out of her way to applaud another parent when she saw her disciplining her misbehaving child at a craft store in Texas. Molly Wooden was shopping at her local Hobby Lobby store in Killeen, Texas when she saw a woman in the bathroom having her son do pushups for talking back. She snapped a quick photo of the moment and praised the woman on Facebook for her actions:
"To the woman in the Hobby Lobby bathroom. If my hands weren’t full of children I would have applauded you. As your son gave you the back talk of the century, you stayed calm and collected while adding 10 more push ups to his already growing number.
We need more parents like you, who aren’t afraid to parent their own children because of what someone else might think. He said “Mama, this is the bathroom floor, grossssss”.
She said “maybe you shouldn’t have been acting obnoxious. (They have soap for a reason.) 10 more.”
Random woman of Hobby Lobby, I love you. 🙌🏼💖
Keep on raisin’ them boys right!"
Soon after she posted the photo it started quickly spreading on social media, with many agreeing that the mother was doing the parenting thing right. Though the power of the internet the other mother was identified as Nicki Harper Quinn and the two women were able to meet up in person this past weekend. The story was quickly picked up by various media outlets and the two women were interviewed about the situation. Quinn told CNN that her 10-year-old son was being a normal boy and acting up on that day and she went to the bathroom so she could discipline her child in a private place. While Wooden apologized to Quinn for taking the photo, the other mother said she was glad she took it.
