Thank God this woman wasn’t my mother!



1. I feel this is a most damaging approach in disciplining
a child, and the mother should be horse whipped!

Seriously, what in the world is going on with some teachers lately?
What they should have done is educate themselves like I, and
millions of others have, by watching Courttv to learn for a fact
that crime doesn't pay, and that you WILL eventually get caught!

silly string to detect tripwires?

that is fucking brilliant, I've been using them as jerry-rigged explosives this whole time...

Yeah, that mom in the first story is a cunt, I'm sure junior will not be coming home for christmas once he's of age and can leave the house.

Silly String
Will we ever look at Silly String the same?

It's so hard to believe a mother could do such a horrible thing to her own child!

I'm sure he'll be traumatized for the rest of his life.

I cannot see the problem with the Mother and GreatGrand Mother doing what they did. They need help with the Child who obviously has serious problems. The Child IS facing expulsion from school. the kid DID take a swing at the school resource officer, and has been in trouble numerous times. They were hoping the police could "scare the child straight" because neither of them could handle the child.

The child was not taken into custody, or even taken from the house. What he needs is a positive male role model, to help his mother in discipline and raining him but apparently the sperm donor hauled ass when he knocked his mom up at 15. The Child will probably become a ward of the state, if DJJ cannot straighten him up a bit.

I just can't agree with you on this one. The crazy mother should have found some other kind of disciplinary help for the boy.

No, he wasn't placed in jail, but he was booked for petty larceny. The only thing she managed to do is give her son a record for larceny, for the rest of his life.

And my question is what lead him to have so many problems in the first place. I tend to believe that a mother of 15 yrs. old behaves like a child, too, and I can't blame her because she was still a child herself when she had him.

The kid was a little bastard anyway. I don't feel the mother did anything wrong. If anything maybe that will set that little shit on the right path. Bad enough he doesn't have a father around to kick his ass. The problem with this kid is that he is already a little hoodlum. he took a swing and i think he actually hit a cop at school. He has been picked up for shoplifting before. He was no angel by any means. Fact remains he took the toy then lied about it. He's already a bad apple in need of reality check The mother did another amazing thing and regifted it to someone else. Now all he gets for christmas is necessities. Thats all that little shithead deserves.

She said the boy likes attention and has a history of bad behavior. He has shoplifted from stores and stolen money from her, she said. The boy has also been inching toward expulsion from school, she added, and even punched a police officer last month. He was arrested for disorderly conduct in that incident.

She hoped the arrest would be a wake-up call for him. She dreads getting a phone call someday reporting he's been killed.

The boy "showed no remorse" when the police came, the mother said.

And she needs to be horsewhipped? Are you sure about that?

Yes, horse whipped, along with the great grandmother. The two sound like nutty fruitcakes to me, who gasp at whatever little thing the poor child does.

And what the hell was the girl doing at 14 years old?! Playing with dolls? The human kind?

The child was born normal. Something along the way turned him into a problem child. I wonder if the mom ever tried getting help from professionals. I doubt it. How much more convenient to just call the cops and have him BOOKED for petty larceny.

I feel so sad for that poor little boy!

Yeah it's called not having a father in the house. His mother was the same way also. Getting pregnant at 15 years old. It's the norm these days for kids to grow up in single parent homes. Kids take their ques from whoever presents the strongest example of a role model. Negative or not. Clearly this is the case. However, there are plenty of children out there that make the RIGHT choices about their lives dispite how they are growing up. Clearly this kid is one of the bad apples. I'm sorry if i don't have any sympathy for this kid. I could have easily have been as bad as him but i did get a reality check not as severe as that but it could have been based on what i got into. That day I made the decision to keep my nose clean. Did he? Nope.. He didn't even have a lick of remorse. Trust me that kid wasn't traumatized by that experience one bit. They were even on Jimmy kimmel of all things.

1) Sometimes a kid needs a shock, I wonder how much shit he has been pullung

2) I hate it when people tarnish my profession.

3)Sounds like the kind of stupid shit I might do on a dare...or a lost bet.

4)The silly string popped up in Time two weeks ago....I have now heard several stories about people organizing drives for string...I predict that within a week Iraq soldiers will be flooded with more of the stuff than they can possibly use.

5)You know my ass has been kind of sore lately.......think I should get probed?....who knows what my rommie left in there after I passed out on the peppermint schapps.....JK

1. But not such a radical shock as this. The little boy obviously has problems. Why not take him for counseling, instead of hard core adult criminals?

2. I do, too!

3. I hope the guy who did it, has piggy nightmares for the rest of his life! :o)

4. I'm gonna start stocking up on the Silly and send it to my brother! I keep one can for myself to play with.

The silly string story is great, and is a testament to the American soldier. I'm sure quite a few sales and marketing types at the various manufacturers of silly string are kicking themselves for not figuring out this application ahead of time. They could have spray painted the cans olive drab, called it "ABDES Foam", for "Advanced Boobytrap DEtection System", and charged the Pentagon 50 dollars a can!

1) Good for the Mother! But, it probably won't do anything to the kid.

2) Yet another example of the lack of ethics and morals in American society.

3)Maybe he wanted to trade the pig for a room.

4)The Marines came up with the idea. Improvise, Adapt, Overcome! Hooah!

1. That mom is a heartless cold bitch to do that to her son! Why is he so unruly? How did she raise him to begin with, at 15 years old, and no father?

The kid was book for larceny, now he has a record that will follow him for the rest of his life. He will remember this, and will feel he has nothing to lose in committing future crimes.

2. I wonder if this type of behavior has happened always. Now we're more aware of it because of the news media.

3. My greatest concern is for the poor pig. I hope it was tossed gently!

4. Hooah! Is right! :o)

5. Yeah right! haaaaaaaa

When I first read the headline a few days ago in the news online, I was thinking what a horrible mother. But as i read the whole story as a parent I can say I applaud her for taking an action that will have an impact on a kid destined on a path that has unfavorable outcomes and few options.
That's what loving your kid is about. Jail is what's in store for him if he continues to act the way he does, why not give him a taste of it now when it has the most potential to scare the bejeezus out of him. That's the kind of trauma I can live with a child having.
In Juvie, he'll get counseling he needs. They aren't cruel people in Child Probation. Believe it or not people in that line of work do care about the kids.
I already bought some silly string to send the troops. Brilliant idea.
As for lightbulbs. Well look at this page. I've heard stories from nurses when I was an EMT.

She is a horrible mother. She should have tried years ago to find some other means of helping her son. I’m sure there are disciplinary camps, or other things provided for helping kids who have problems. Perhaps the boy is hyperactive, and if so, he should have been on medication prescribed by a doctor.

Another thing, I feel the mother and great grand mother exaggerate the problem. Why hell, my brothers and I use to always hunt for our Christmas presents and take a peek!

Besides, now the poor kid has a record for petty larceny, and this is going to mess his life up royally in the future. Also, he will never trust his mother, and I won’t blame him.

No Donchep, what the mother did is totally outrageous.

I’m glad you’ve stocked up on that Silly Dilly stuff, and I sure hope my beloved brother, who will be sent to Iraq in January, will get some! :o)

I read the link, and I almost fell out of my seat with laughter! Those people have some kind of problem, huh?! haaaaaaaa

Are you sure you read the first article carefully? The boy had a history of bad behavior. On the road to expulsion, he exhibited *violent* behavior towards authority figures. Obviously he was in a loving environment, getting a nice present under the tree, etc. But he needed help.
Calling the police to give him a wake-up call is a valid form of tough love if I ever heard of one. I am not going to judge this woman. She's obviously a single mother, workign towards a degree to better herself for his sake as well as hers. She is an example of someone who doesn't want to leech off the system. But she has no male authority figure to helpher out. She did the best thing she could do inthe situation.
Unless our Juvenile Justice Sysatem is somehow cruel and abusive, she did what someone who loves a kid ebnough to save him from himself should do. To do anything else less because it is not as "distasteful" would be criminal.
If you love your child and he is on the wrong path, then you come down on him as hard as you can with all the love you have before the system does it without you without a single care in the world.
Like Bill Cosby says in his "Fatherhood" act in the 80s. I brought you into this world, I can take you out. This boy is not some suburbanite emo kid who whines about being "misunderstood". He is a future thug who needs to know what the end of the road he is taking looks like.
maybe he needs to sign up for the big brother program. Whatever it takes, but a small dose of mama's wrath won't do him any harm.

I hate to bring out the dirty laundry, but I understand the Tough Love philosophy very well because that’s how I, as well and my brothers were raised, by being thrown out of the house just as soon as we graduated from high school, and we were good kids! We all grew up to be self sufficient (muy a huevo!), thank God, but we sometimes have these little negative thoughts we carry to this day.

Should I ever have children, I will raise them through Tender Love, and the hell with Tough Love!

What this mother did will only have made matters worse. The only way I might change my mind about her is by knowing her history, and by this I mean, how did she conduct herself for the past 10 or so years, and what other avenues did she try, before calling the cops on her own child. I’ll never be able find out the answers to these questions; therefore, I remain firm in my belief that she went too far by having her son arrested.

It is not the child’s fault she had him as a child herself while there was no dad in sight. What this mother did is only going to make matters worse. I honest to God believe she could have attempted more conventional methods of attempting to save her son!

She is an example of someone who doesn't want to leech off the system.

Por Dios, has me el favor! She's been leeching for 13 years now!!

Hmmm...I wonder when you and I will agree on something?! haaaaaaaa

For over 25 years several states have implemented a "scared straight" program in which parents have voluntarily let authorities take their troubled teens and pre-teens (12 years old count) to prison tours where hardcore felons give them the hard truth of what to expect if they stay on the path they are being led on.
These programs have been considered successful as to the rate of graduates avoiding hard time when they become adults.
I still think what this mother did was right. I grew up in one of those types of neighborhoods, al of my friend were gangbangers, and i could have easily fallen into that crowd if it weren't for the fact i was afraid of my dad more than my friends.
You do whatever you have to do for the sake of your kids even if they think we are the bad guys. I'm a dad with a very good son, but I'd do whatever i had to correct anything that would turn him into a loser thug.
And you made another assumption. You assumed mother is leeching off system, but where in that entire article does it say anything other than that she was getting a degree in business? hasme el favor de no presumir :)
There will come a time when we will agree, and that's when you recognize i am wise and know i'm right :)

Until then

Nah, I don’t believe I assume the system has been forking the bill for this woman’s creature comforts!

So, then can you tell me how did this mother feed, clothe, this child for 12 years, and who paid for the child’s delivery? Oh, and who is paying for her college tuition?

If you can answer these questions, I gladly get down on my knees and worship you! :o)

You got all this from an article? And it's up to *ME* to prove you are wrong when you have nothing to base it on? It doesn't work that way. The same way you can't prove michael Richards isn't a racist based on how he looks from a mile away. Reading between the lines? Good lord I hope you don't get picked fo jury duty if i am ever on trial. You'd probably hang me :)

Did you know a good portion of kids are bad when there isn't a stay at home parent in their early years 0-6 years old? Can we also speculate that she was working during a large part of that time or maybe still in school? In this era where you have one group trying to deny abortions, they still want to cut these dumb kids down with he same sword and lay the world on them if they choose to have the kid and he/she need a little help.
I didn't read that she was sitting on her ass all day with 15 kids collecting a check as a baby factory. And even if she did receive help I thought we all agreed that as long as it was a temporary measure it was fine. But that is ASSUMING she was on the government teat al her life.
Sounds like she is trying to do the right thing to me.
I don't need worship from you, I have that from the right person already. But you'll learn to think twice whenever we don't agree ;)

That was me. Now you've got me doing the same thing!
”You’d probably hang me.”

You’d be surprised. I’ve been meaning to make a post about what I experienced the day I served for jury duty, and will do it soon.

Yes, it’s a possibility that this woman was working, but then too, I’m almost positive she was on government assistance from the very beginning of her pregnancy. There’s no way in hell she could have managed financially without it, unless her great grand mother was the one paying her bills and education!

That’s right, you didn’t read that she was sitting on her ass all day, but then, you didn’t read that she wasn’t either.

Of course I agree that government assistance should be provided for those who need help temporarily, but this really isn’t the issue here. The issue is her having her son arrested.

Do you agree with me or not, that the boy will have a record for the rest of his life, for petty larceny? There’s no way in hell he’ll ever be able to wipe it off his record.

I still feel the boy’s problems stem from the way he was raised. Perhaps there were beatings used to discipline him, or there was never any bonding between mother and child. Just because she has now started to educate herself, doesn’t mean she was an exemplar mother from the beginning. There are so many factors here. You say I shouldn’t assume stuff, but aren’t you doing the same thing, too? Sure, there are many single mothers who had their child while they were still children themselves, and are excellent mothers.

As I mentioned before, I’d like to know what other channels this woman tried, before she went to such extremes.

You’re right; you do make me think twice when we disagree!

By and by, it must be nice to be worshiped! Perhaps someday I’ll permit someone to worship me, too! :o)

Re: That was me. Now you've got me doing the same thing!
Ok let me try this one more time. You can't prove a negative. No one has to prove she wasn't on assistance, because it was never mentioned.
Don't you realize that's like looking at the color of someone's skin and deciding that that person is good or bad? You have nothing to go on, but a weaving of supposition that's based on an article of a few paragraphs that offers no description of the mother at all?
The only thing offered is that kid was rotten on the verge of being delinquesnt.

As a minor, his "record" won't affect his adulthood. He already assaulted a police officer before this, don't you think he already has a record?

Honestly you can just as easily look at a person you neve rmet, and say "I bet she is a criminal and you don't know she isn't". One doesn't have to prove you are wrong. It's up to YOU to prove you are right.

I have no reason to believe she went overboard. I read what he kid has already done and at best if he is detained in Juvenile hall he'll get counseling and treatment from real social workers. He's not going to be thrown in a penitentiary with hardened criminals, and he won't be treaumatized by his experience. At worst, his mom won't let him have the gameboy she bought the ungrateful little brat fro X-mas.

1. What is wrong with the police officers arresting a child for unwrapping Christmas presents early.
It was his present so what is the big deal maybe the mother and grand mother should be arrested for contributing to the delinquency of the child they got the present so early and told him what it was maybe if they did not make so much out of the little things they would not turn in to big ones.
"Yeah, it's strange,"

2. I think the teacher finally got the education here he needed :o)

3. An animal throwing incident hahahaaaa… this is too strange to be true
maybe he heard some one say lets go throw around the pig skin
and he is just not that bright :o) lol if I was the judge in this case I would of made him spend the night with the pig. in the pigpen! And in the morning make him clean the pigpen that would give him all the throwing he ever wanted

4. Hey if it works why not!!
I remember when I was a kid there was a incident that happened at a birthday party, where the silly string would burst in to flames if it was to close to the candles on the cake we all had to try it out what this has to do with this I don’t know :o) just thought I would add

5. Hahahaaa,, this is all most as bad as the guy that shot him self in the mouth with the nail gun and the nail was in the roof of his mouth and he did not know how it happened.

You know I wonder if this guy was a sumo wrestler or some thing lol *Wink Wink*

3. You know I still cannot figure out why this guy thinks it is so fun to do this to pigs I just don't get it? :o)

4. I hope it is not just to see if it will burst in to flames =) lol that is not the kind of a Hot time! I want to have with you ;o) heh heh
