Mom Goes Viral for Making Her Kid Do Pushups as Punishment


A Texas mom forged a surprising friendship with a stranger thanks to a viral Facebook post and some pushups. Mom of two Molly Wooden took her kids to the Hobby Lobby bathroom in Killeen, Texas and noticed a 10-year-old boy giving his mom attitude. In return for his bad behavior, the mom ordered her son to drop to the ground and give her 10 pushups. Wooden snapped a photo to show her husband. “I was in awe,” she tells The Post.

She posted it to her 950 or so Facebook friends, writing, “As your son gave you the back talk of the century, you stayed calm and collected.” Wooden closed her post: “Random woman of Hobby Lobby, I love you. Keep on raisin’ them boys right!” “I was so proud to know that some parents still got it,” says Wooden. Her followers were in awe too and began sharing.

Soon, the post went viral with more than 40,000 shares. The woman didn’t stay random for long, though. The pushup mother — Nicki Harper Quinn of Copperas Cove, Texas — heard from an old pal in Georgia that a photo with Quinn in it was blowing up. Quinn contacted Wooden first through Facebook to say thanks. The two women and their kids (both have two) then met in real life on Friday at a Starbucks.
