*Now this is what a responsible parent is supposed to do.
Today, one Baltimore mother is getting love from folks after seeing her go upside her son’s head via footage that went viral.
The woman – Toya Graham – can be seen slapping and pushing him away from a crowd of people. She can also be heard reading his narrow behind about why his actions are not okay.
According to WMAR, the mom took to the streets after seeing her son on television throwing rocks at police. The news station also said that Baltimore Police Commissioner Anthony Batts applauded the mom for stepping up. (Mama Graham also gets points from us for not being scared of her son, either and had no problem laying hands on him.)
Since the riots will likely result in adolescents being jailed or harmed by the police, it would be great if more parents take charge and keep their children from partaking in violent demonstrations. The family of Gray asked for peace in the city on the day that their son and brother was laid to rest. Unfortunately, their pleas fell on deaf ears.
“To see that it turned into all this violence and destruction, I am appalled,” said Richard Shipley, Gray’s stepfather, according to WTVR.
