Wow! I wish I was able to donate to this. I cannot believe the injustice this Mother is going through. To the 13 yr old, You should be ASHAMED of YOUR behavior! Your Mother provides for you, keeps a roof over your head and all she asks is that you come in by curfew. What are you doing that you need to stay out past 9pm? Your 13 for crying out loud! You should help raise money to help with the Legal fees since YOUR the reason they were incurred in the first place! I cannot believe how rude and disrespectful you acted! I Hope your Grandmother tore your little behind up because THAT is the least you DESERVE you ungrateful brat! Momma Folsom, I praise you for you did the Best you could trying to raise your son to be a productive member of society. Maybe after all the attention your situation is getting he will realize HE (as well as the Law) did you wrong and will change his ways. The World is Praying for you!
For the person emailing me and stating that I shouldn't be a father, who are you to judge me? I'm sorry but I was brought up to respect my elders and do as I was told WITHOUT QUESTIONS. I have mad respect for people and I believe it made me a better person. Schools now a days are telling kids that not even parents have the right to discipline them so one day one of my kids told me that I can't spank him or he can call the police on me, well I called the police myself and had them come to my house and explain to my kids exactly the difference between disciplining and abusing children. That subject was never brought up again and I made sure I spoke with that teacher as well. Just leave this mother alone and allow her to raise her children the right way.
I think this is total bull. This mother is trying to teach her son a lesson and unless he is being beaten and starved to death then nobody should have the right to interfere with her methods. How many times has she told him to be home at a certain time and he didn't respect his mothers decision? He had a pillow and blanket and I bet he wouldn't come in late again. This is what's wrong with society today, giving the CHILDREN too much power. I bet all these people that don't agree with her methods would be crucifying her if she didn't give him a curfew and allowed him to run the streets doing God knows what. You just can't make everyone happy. Well that is your opinion if you don't like her parental teachings. You know what they say about opinions right? Just like an a$$hole, everyone's got one. Leave this mother alone and take care of your own children. Maybe your kids can help you clean that glass house you seem to live in. This CHILD is 13yo and if he was my son, he wouldn't even be going out during the week on a school night so he should consider himself lucky.Mom you are doing the right thing trying to teach your children respect and responsibility.
Debbie Mitchell DeMooy NOW IF SHE WOULD HAVE WHIPPED HIM FOR HIS DISOBEDIENCE, THEY WOULD HAVE JAILED HER STILL AND SOUGHT TO TERMINATE HER RIGHTS TO BE HIS PARENT. TEN TIMES OUT OF TEN HIS DAD WAS NOT IN HIS LIFE. HE PROBABLY DON'T WANT TO DEAL WITH THIS SITUATION.
This is truly unfortunate.Our system has allowed us as parents to fail our children.The system wants us to be responsible for our children and as an overseer in Gods eyes I see that as a parent our backs are against the wall.I certainly agree when a child with disciplinary issues and is disrespecting my household, yes indeed he or she shall be handled in a manner in which they would think twice about ever disrespecting my household or anyone else.Remember my household is where the children reside with RULES TO OBEY and clothes and food provided as the bible laws state.Our rules for our children are to be enforced when they break them.I know if they break the laws of the land the officers will truly enforce in a manner which might not be good and then our children rebels and get thrown into jail as FREE LABORS.What has been done now is that the laws of the land seems to work against us as hard working , providing,loving,spiritual beings in our children s lives. Now the children feel we as parents can not do anything to them and they can holler wolf and get away with it.My SISTA you are truly not alone.I too have a young teen that I refuse to allow the system to have him.He was born for greatness and and A student that chose to break rules here and even though my tactics were different I understand.Please feel free to reach out Some locate Police offices HELPED me to find a solution and saw the Love I have for my son ,so he will not go into this world destroying others.,get in trouble or get killed #BUTGOD #TrustGod #ThereIsHelp
YOU DID IT TONI
Hi, you are so brave. My son has been in trouble for the past 3 years, if its not school its just plain not listening and thinking he knows more than me and his father. He is so lucky to have a two parent household when so many children do not. We've had to endure him getting caught shoplifting, and taking things to school that he shouldn't, smoking pot, and getting in fights with just about everyone, including us. He was expelled feom.school and swnt to an alternative school. We.took him to counseling, ive missed countless hours of work and its only caught on a little bit. He still doesnt get it. He has a strong sense of determination but he goes about it in all the wrong ways. If he could just not talk back and listen he'd never be in trouble. My husband has threatened to leave him out all night countless times and I've never had your courage to follow through. You should never have been arrested for disciplining your child. He wasn't beaten or, hungry or living in filth, he was being disobedient and this is extremely unjust arresting you, how about arresting him. Wheres the help foe the parents?? I am sorry I have no money to give. But believe this, I am a total stranger who believes you did the right thing. I wish I had your strength and I pray things get better for you and your son. Everyday shouldn't have to be a struggle with our own children, life is already hard enough making sure bills are paid and everyone's fed. Good luck to you. I'll be thinking about you.
I wish I could donate, but please know you have my support 100%!!! There are so many parents these days that do not make the time to take an active interest in their child/children's activities, they just let them run around taking no responsibility for their actions. So kudos to you for trying to teach your son respect, discipline, and right from wrong. I'd also be willing to bet if he hadn't learned his lesson before, he has now!
Way to go !!!!! Don't let the system control you we ate their parents we live with them on a daily basis we know what punishments they need and what works best for them not the corrupt government .. keep your head up and keep doing the right thing we are all supporting you and standing behind you 100%
People have so muvh to say but what if that same 13 year olds mother had no care/ concern ehay he did or where he was at. What if he was out stealing, raping, murdering, dtug dealing, and commiting these crimes against your friends and families. Then you'd be satisfied huh? Another statististic. Thats a problem of today so many advocates for the wrong thing. I salute this mother as well. Her child, again her child was being defiant and needed yo be taught a lesson. Im sure he was advised of the reaction yo his action and didnt care. In my day 911 would have looked at the bigger picture. Now hes with the grandmother probably giving her hell & still breaking curfew......smdh
THANKS everyone for YOUR donations! EVERY penny counts! SALUTE to each of you!
