A Baltimore mom was trying to tame violence when she realized her son was throwing rocks at police.
She was sure to voice her disappointment, as video caught the woman smacking the boy and chasing him when he walked away.
Baltimore’s police commissioner praised her.
“You had one mother who grabbed her child, who had a hood on his head, and she started smacking him on the head because she was so embarrassed,” Commissioner Anthony W. Batts said. “I wish I had more parents that took charge of their kids out there.”
Some social media posts are calling the woman “Mom of the Year.”
