Toya Graham, “The Mother of the Year”, on The View

Toya Graham is the toast of the town. She is still being touted as the mother of the year. She is the mother that gave her son a very public beat down and the world is applauding her, but should they? If she did this same act on any other day she would have been arrested. Graham has been on CBS, CNN, NBC and ABC, but a year from now where will she and her son be?

Is Toya Graham the Mother of the Year?

By now everyone has seen the Baltimore mother, Toya Graham “beating” her son. She found him at Mondawmin Mall with a rock in his hand about to participate in the melee at the mall. She grabbed him their encounter has gone viral. Graham is being praised but why? it is interesting that we are witnessing appropriate situational parenting. I say this because if her son had merely been getting off a school bus, and she was using this same form of discipline against him for what she perceived to be wrong she would have been arrested. So the real question is “is corporal punishment wrong?” Or is appropriate in certain situations, and who determines what situation is appropriate? Share your thoughts.
