SOME PEOPLE ARE COMPLAINING, BUT the Insta-Wife has found her Mother Of The Year. “This is a woman who has had enough of her kid acting like an idiot and putting himself in a very bad, and possibly dangerous situation. This mother let her son know that she did not approve of what he was doing and when he tried to walk away, she let him know that he had better listen to her. . . . But to compare an uncontrolled act of parenting to the justified anger that this Baltimore mom had in this dangerous and outrageous situation is wrong. To call it poor parenting is to misunderstand the difference between good parenting and feelings of guilt for lacking control. This mother was in control and she was teaching her son that his behavior warranted a strong response. I say a smack on the head here was the least of this teen’s problems. If in the end, he resents his mother for it, so what? Better that than end up in jail or dead because his mother was too concerned about appearing controlled.”
