According to NBC4 another woman was hauled off to jail for disciplining a child. The 12-year-old girl threatened her great grandmother saying she would call the police if she was switched because of talking back.
She called the police and had her grandma placed in jail, read the full story below:
HOT SPRINGS, AR (WCMH) – An Arkansas woman was hauled away to jail after she used a switch on her great-granddaughter, who she says was sassing her.
It all started when the 12-year-old girl talked back while refusing to throw away food, according to a police report.
According to police, the girl still has visible welts on her arm.
Norma Toussaint, 70 tells KARK-TV she pulled a switch off her front hedges, pulled off the leaves and used it to punish her 12-year-old great-granddaughter.
“And I went back in the house and whooped her on her arm,” Toussaint said.
That’s when the upset girl called 911.

“I asked, I said ‘you want to call the police on me’”, said Toussaint. “And she said yes. I said ‘call ’em then.’”
A short time later, at least four police officers showed up at her home.
Toussaint said an officer told her she should have used the switch on the girl’s bottom instead.
She is now facing a felony domestic violence charge and a restraining order has been filed against her.
This world is a crazy place!

Lol my mom said her parents made her pick the switch. This was down south
Princess Cici Paul don’t mess up with grandma
I want to know did she kick that girl out the house since she wants to be grown-up let her learn the hard way.
That’s not child abuse lol if so my homegirl mom would of been to jail that’s the same way my homegirl mom used to discipline them when they was talking bad being disrespectful and not doing what they needed todo
There was a day when kids were really being abused by they were passed down the behavior but most kids now are not abused. I’m going to discipline mine and I wish they would.
That’s right there is nothing wrong with disciplining children. Nowadays their little asses need it
That is a over reach. The Officers were doing their job. You must know had they did nothing and the grandmother went to far then the Officers did nothing. Allow the judge to throw it out. But don’t start pointing the finger at the Officers. They are damn if they go too far and damn if they do their job.
In the famous words of Djay from Hustle and Flow…”Whoop that trick”.
Seriously, kids need respectable fear. Today, they fear no one. Not even the police! So, a “spanking” PUH-LEEEEZ…there should be a fundraiser or foundation for bail money for all parents who go to jail for disciplining their kids. Arresting parents sends the wrong message….police of the old skool were on parents side…as log as their isn’t blatant cruelty or abuse….spank on parents, grandparents, great grandparents, borrowed parents, adopt a parent….whomever!!
Damn sure that how i remember it growing up she not hurting her it discipline she just fast ass and don’t want to listen to grandma and u got people’s out in this world killing they own kid’s and here grandma raising grandchild when she should be drinking lemonade not with Becky with the good weave. (Lil humor on end).
If i had to complained each time i got beaten up by my parents, they would be serving a life sentence right now lolll…It hurts at the time but i am really pround of the person ive become today
There is a line between abuse and discipline. This Grandma was nowhere near it? So who watched the kids when the police hauled Grandma off to jail? Some abusive foster care worker? Who is going to discipline this child when she becomes out of control? Some abusive police officer? This woman was sent to jail for caring.
No respect at all. She wouldn’t be able to stay at my house. Despicable
Mine either. She’d be off to some kind of reform school. If not, her life would be unbearable. I’d take away all her clothes except 7 pairs of underwear, 2 pairs of shoes 4 shirts/2pants. Remove all doors to bath/bedroom, etc. She would have to work to gain trust back. But most parents also aren’t willing to do that kind of work anymore.
Yes Marionette Allen Audifferen because by law all we have to provide is shelter, food, and clothing. Everything else they get is just fluff anyway.
Exactly! Kids feel too entitled.
Aunt Esther ain’t playing. Spare the rod and spoil the brat. Give that little witch back to her MOTHER who can run behind her.
Juvenile incorrigible law. I’ll make yo azz a ward of the state b#tch. You won’t call the police on my mama.
Girl would never make it back in house
Johari Kafi damned right. Take you and whatever you walked with and get out.
Wow, I feel the grandmother was absolutely right. I don’t know but that little girl would have to stay in a group home or somewhere until I cool down, if I do. You call the police, I say go live with them. Not in my house because I have rules.
She needed it that’s why the black population boys and girls r falling by the wayside .
Sad n a fail
THAT IS SO SAD CHILDREN ARE DOING ALL KIND OF THINGS SO SAD BACK IN THE DAYS OUR PARENT’S WOULD DISCIPLINE
Well all our parents would have been in jail
I know that’s right !
Spoiled little sh**s…
If her great granddaughter, had nerve to call police raise her. What is wrong with these children?
This is just a shame, this is why these kids are out of control and so disrespectful. Because they feel there’s nothing you can do to them to make them listen to you. When the police arrest them she’ll get more than a switch for not listening to them and they surely don’t care how they hurt you, or even about killing you. Teaching begins at home it will show when their out in the streets.
They don’t want you disciplining you child because they want them to go to jail. But thats my opinion.
That child wouldn’t be able to live with me anymore sorry…
Now they will take the kid to foster care, where she won’t find a stable home, because she has no respect for authority, and she will be treat invisible like she wants. So sad, and of course the police arrested the grandma, one elder lady arrested for one day, a young lady enslaved for 12 years. Think about it
Twelve year old would be looking for somewhere else to live if she called police after my mom or I whipped her ass.
When they take me to jail they need to take her to foster care. I’m not jumping through hoops to get her back either. Not one parenting class. The state just told that child that if she as a child doesn’t like what her grown parents do she can have them thrown in jail.
We won’t hear about it this time but I guarantee after her parents had to bond their grandmother out of jail and the child came home she got the asswhooping of a lifetime and never said a word.
Then you my dear, will reap the negative karma that’ll head your way. You’re still the adult. She’s a kid. This generation is jacked up as it is.
Tattianna Bianca StClair karma is your thing not mine. There is no karma there’s one judgement when you meet your maker.
Have and raise some children then we can talk. Until then any kids you do get can run all over you and have you locked up. Which in actuality is what’s wrong with your generation. Yes, she is a kid and as a kid she does what her adult parents say and when they say in their house. When you start to dictate what goes on in a house that means you’re grown and you need your own house, whatever age you are.
You are absolutely right. The system is set up to incarcerate the children not educate. Back in the day we were in line, because our mother, father, grandparents, neighbors, or friends would discipline us on the spot. There were rules and repercussions for your actions. This is why my generation is respectful. However, the Government is telling parents that they can’t touch the children we gave birth to. Therefore, the child is going to be disrespectful and commit crimes etc. The cop will shoot that disorderly child that couldn’t get home training or discipline from the parent. Or the child will go to jail.
i guess its better if the police beat them down and murder them, like they have BEEN doing!
I would have perfered getting it from my mom (bigma) rather than the ass kicking the world gives any day. Thanks mom and grandmom for saving my life.
She was right for disciplining her grand daughter. Here in Hawaii its a little different. Because when my son was arrested for the eating his teacher. He told the police he is safer n the holding tank. I told the police u might as well arrest my now because when he get home I’m going to were his ass out. The police said come on son get ur punishment from your mother. He told me do what I have to do to teach him what he did was wrong. And when I got him home he kissed every wall n my house. I’m not raising a dumb ass. Since then he has been walking a straight line.
Well then that child needs to stay with hey own mother. She would not step foot back in my house. That’s why this generation coming up today had no back bone. They can’t take anything, so easy to commit suicide because someone talks. about them. We weren’t so easily swayed just from words but then again our parents spent time with us. Maybe some of these kids need to spend time in foster, they feel like they got it so easy
It depends on whether they saw any injuries. Cops will say that a parent can spank, as long as parents or caretakers don’t go overboard and the kid’s face and body looks like Spot from The Little Rascals.
So they prefer to accept the child behavior????
Growing up my mom used switch
S**t I have seven and will and have whooped they butts that’s what’s wrong with the world now I raise mine how I was raised and I’ve had many ass whoopings and it tough me a lot and most of all respect
Children need disapline, n it comes in many forms, u no ur child, whatever punishment needed must fit the crime. including woopens when needed, Laws need 2 b changed, we have a lost generation, unless these children minds r changed.
Who will she call when the police hit her the Gransmother who was right in the first place. Sad!!!!!
Some of these kids need there ass whip foreal leave that lady along she was doing what’s right!!!!!!
If she is grown enough & want to talk back, not listen & have the gaul to call the police then she is grown enough to take care of herself & live else where. She would not be in my house talking back & threating me and I’m taking care of her….please she’d have to go & I wouldn’t hesitate calling child protective services to COME GET HER. This generation has no respect what so ever & need to learn life lessons sometimes the hard way because listening & being obedient to adults at home seems to be too hard, so I say leave, live on your on & see how hard live really is.
