A mother in Baltimore has won over the Internet by scolding and smacking her son on camera for taking part in the violence that escalated throughout the city on Monday.

“Get over here now!” she screams repeatedly after slapping the teen in the head a few times.

The boy was throwing rocks at police, which initially sparked her outrage according to WMAR newswho first captured the moment on video.

A large portion of the afternoon rioters were students that started causing trouble after school got out for the day.

And Baltimore Police Commissioner Anthony Batts mentioned her in his press conference Monday using her as an example of what more parents should be doing to take control of the situation.

“If you saw in one scene, you had one a mother who grabbed their child who had a hood on his head and she started smacking him on the head because she was so embarrassed. I wish I had more parents who took charge of their kids tonight,” he said.

Many on Twitter are calling her “mom of the year.”
