If this mom doesn’t deserve the “Mother of the Year” award then I don’t know who does!
Toya Graham found out her son was trying to participate in a Baltimore riot at the Mondawmin Mall, in which people were acting like hoodlums and throwing things at police. She used this perfect opportunity to humiliate the fire out of him! It’s beautiful!
Graham is a single mother of six who doesn’t put up with such shenanigans:
“Graham told CBS News that her son said he wanted to run when he saw her coming.
“‘I’m a no-tolerant mother. Everybody who knows me, knows I don’t play that,’ Graham told the network. ‘He knew. He knew he was in trouble.’
Graham told CBS News that she and her son made eye contact and she didn’t even think about the news cameras when she went after her boy.
“‘That’s my only son and at the end of the day I don’t want him to be a Freddie Gray,’ she told CBS. “I was angry. I was shocked, because you never want to see your child out there doing that.”
Although things were chaotic and everyone was masked, she had no trouble figuring out exactly which person was her kid and immediately laid into him.
Not only was this momma on point to come and pull her kid out of that mess, but she was also thanked by Baltimore Police Commissioner, Anthony Bates.
He said, “And if you saw in one scene you had one mother who grabbed their child who had a hood on his head and she started smacking him on the head because she was so embarrassed,” Bates continued, “I wish I had more parents that took charge of their kids out there tonight.”
You go, Mom!
