A perfect story for this March, which has been designated “National Parenting Awareness Month,” is the South Central Los Angeles mom who, with her two daughters, assaulted the younger daughter’s teacher on the campus of John Muir Middle School.

Kiki Fowler, the 33-year-old mom, is reported to have led the attack which lasted several minutes and included punches, slamming the teacher to the ground and ripping of her shirt and bra.

The teacher, who has been at the school for 14 years working in special education, according to reports, said she had no warning.  But the attack may have been based on  Fowler’s 7th grade daughter who was told to behave according to school policy and not to wear a hoodie in the classroom.
The mother was arrested and posted bail; however, her daughters remain in Los Padrinos Juvenile Detention Center.

In 2008, Georgia Thornton and her daughter Sequita Thornton, an Atlanta high school student, carried out a similar act of terrorism.  Reports say the mother-daughter duo  went to Southside High School to confront teacher, Felecia Williams, for giving the girl a failing grade.

Police said the mother then beat and kicked the teacher until students pulled her away.  The mother said of her actions: “That teacher, she had it in for my daughter, I raised my daughter not to disrespect adults, so I took care of this situation. Yes, I hit her. I do what I have to do to protect my child at all costs.”
