Mom Being Praised For Making Son Do Pushups In Public Restroom
A Texas mom posted a photo on her Facebook page of a woman disciplining her child in a Hobby Lobby. With the photo, she described how the mother was making her son do pushups in the bathroom because he had been misbehaving. The post was done by Molly Wooden. She said the woman stayed calm and added 10 more push-ups to his already growing number while the child was back-talking to her. In her post, she went on to give major props to the mother she saw in the bathroom. Wooden applauded the mother saying that the world needs more parents like her who aren't afraid to discipline their children because of what others might think.
In her post, she says the boy told his mother, "Mama, this is the bathroom floor, grosssss". And she said the mother's response was, "Maybe you shouldn't have been acting obnoxious. They have soap for a reason. 10 more".
We interviewed Nicki Quinn this morning to ask her about the reactions she received from the Facebook post. Here's what she had to say:
Wooden updated her original Facebook post and added that she has since found the mom through social media and the mother, Nicki Harper Quinn, thanked her for posting it. Quinn told Mooden she appreciates the support and positive comments. This story has the best ending as the moms met after the post and have become friends.
