"To the woman in the Hobby Lobby bathroom. If my hands weren’t full of children I would have applauded you. As your son gave you the back talk of the century, you stayed calm and collected while adding 10 more push-ups to his already growing number," Molly wrote on her Facebook post.

The mom showed no shame or embarrassment...

"We need more parents like you, who aren’t afraid to parent their own children because of what someone else might think. He said, 'Mama, this is the bathroom floor, grossssss.' She said maybe you shouldn’t have been acting obnoxious. (They have soap for a reason.) 10 more'."

Since Molly shared the post, it has been shared more than 42,000 times...

And many of the comments were praising the mom for her resilience and strict parenting style. "This right here is what America needs to get back to... parenting!" one impressed mom wrote on Facebook.

Many believe this method will make children learn their lessons quicker...

Facebook user David Turner commented, "I'm all for it... real consequences for running that mouth. Keep it up and u will be the buffest kid out there. That's [why] so many of these feel the need to say and do anything with no repercussions. I do the same thing. Made my son jog about 10 blocks cause he was being disrespectful. The lesson this will not be tolerated and if u continue it will be consequences [sic]"

But not everyone felt this way...

"Horrible, she took him [aside]. A public restroom isn't really private. A good mother would have finished up an addressed the issue at home," one user wrote.

Some felt that this would turn the young boy against his mom...

"Some parents don't realize that kids pretty much have a feeling of resentment. Especially after doing push-ups in a public restroom. [And] washing our hands doesn't kill every germ. I'm sure there was a better solution, and this wasn't it. Some adults are just [too] selfish to see true parenting through..." another wrote.

It is an extremely mixed opinion...

But at the end of the day, it's more than likely that the young boy learned his lesson from this unorthodox method of discipline.
