Meet Chiquita Hill, the Columbus, Georgia mom who takes her child’s misbehavior seriously, and enacts tough confidence. This mom called the police on her son to teach him a lesson.
Exactly Why the Mom Called the Police on Her Son
Last month, 10-year-old Sean was in for a surprise from his 33-year-old single mother, Chiquita Hill. Although this surprise was planned out of love, it would not be a happy surprise for Sean. This mom called the police on her son.
It all started one day when Sean’s teacher paid a visit to Hill’s home. Sean’s classroom teacher explained to Hill that she had seen a disrespectful attitude developing in the 10-year-old boy. The teacher said he had been disrespectful to multiple teachers, as well as to the kids in his class. The teacher was concerned about his misbehavior in school, and she explained that Sean had brushed her off whenever she’d talked to him about not paying attention during lessons.
That visit and conversation with Sean’s teacher concerned and upset her, and she made a plan. The mom called the police on her son.
Hill explained, “I knew I had to do something to shock him.”
Thinking about his future, and hoping to redirect her son’s behavior, Hill called got in touch with the Columbus, Georgia Police Department. She explained to an officer what the teacher had told her, as well as her concerns for his future. She shared that she is a single mom, and she needed some help to nip this problem in the bud.
Hill wasn’t sure whether the police would help her, given the nature of her idea. But after they heard about his entire situation, they decided to work with her on the plan, and use it to encourage Sean to take responsibility for his behavior. According to Hill, they understood where she was coming from and wanted to help her.
After visiting the police department, Hill returned home, ready to enact her plan. She explained to Sean that he was going to be arrested for his behavior and the way he’d been disrespectful in school. According to Hill, it didn’t make an impact at first.
She explained that he “didn’t believe me…When they showed up at the door, that’s when it hit him.”
Two police pulled up to their home, and came up to Sean. He was shocked. They explained to Sean that they were arresting him due to his disrespectful and inappropriate behavior at school.
Fox Business discussed if this practice was a good idea:
Of the event, Hill said, “the two officers tried to make it look ‘real’ and did their best. He actually thought that he was going to the jail.”
Sean was handcuffed by the police officers and taken to the police car. They put him inside where he stayed for less than five minutes.
While he was in the car, the police officers talked to him about his behavior. They asked if he was sorry for his disrespectful behavior, and discussed with him the importance of him behaving well both at school and at home with his mother.
Sean promised to change his behavior, and then the cops let him go.
“They told him they would let him go if he promised that he would behave like a good boy,” Hill said.
He ran back to his mom crying and shaking, according to Hill. She said he “gave me the biggest hug and said, ‘I’ll never do it again.’”
And apparently, it made the impression she was hoping for. Hill shared, “I was trying to get the point across to my son; if you want to be disrespectful and you want to be rude, this is what happens when bad people do bad things.”
