    You know, these situations really grit my teeth! I'm a single mother with a special needs DD. sometimes my daughter hits and pushes other children because she's frustrated and it's to do with her condition. Or the other child was teasing her. Some parents need to get off their high horse and not abuse the other parent for their child hitting. Because there is always an underlying reason...most children don't hit for the sake of it... And in my situation my daughter has a handicap. Some parents are just ignorant little beings who need self control before approaching the other parent.

    I would be pretty ****ed off if someone's kid hit my kid as well, especially in a library of all places. I do however think her reaction to you is pretty extreme and wonder if there is more to the situation that hasn't come through in the OP.

    TBH, I don't think this sort of thing is only said to single mothers.

    OP couldn't your sister who has care of your daughter full time take the other 2 periodically to give you a bit of a break?

    I would be fuming if somebody hit my child! Don't know if I would go as far as to abuse the mother though. Was more said before she called you a b!tch?

    I think calling somebody a ***** of a mother in front of children is far worse than a toddler hitting another child. Most toddlers go through this phase, it's no reflection of your parenting.

    Did you say anything to Nathan before she reacted? If some kid hit my child, and the mother said nothing, I would probably assume she's a bit of a crappy parent too. Wouldn't call her a b*tch (to her face at least), but would be judging.

    That said, I'm not sure how children cannot be properly supervised in a library. Surely a child not old enough to understand how to behave properly is either sat in a pram or has his hand held so he can't do any damage?

    If only it were that easy. My 2yr old dd is very...spirited. The last time we were at the library she was difficult to control. Keeping her in the pram or restraining her by the hand would result in screaming. I could always just not take her anywhere for the convenience of others...

    Having said that, if she punched someone I'd be onto it straight away and make her apologise. If she were the one being punched and the mother hadn't seen it, I'd politely tell her what happened. Even if things got heated I wouldn't resort to name calling or swearing. What's that going to achieve?

    Bottom line, I think her reaction was uncalled for.

    I sometimes take my nephew to the library and it is full of toddlers and preschoolers who are running around while the parents are on computers, looking at books or talking to people. Libraries now are set up so kids can free range with supervision, but not close supervision.

    I think her reaction is totally uncalled for, rude and offensive. She is the one being a b***ch!

    My son has a hitting problem and pushes or hits other kids everywhere we go! I would be mortified if someone verbally abused me because of it! If my son gets hit or pushed I just move him away from the aggressor and tell both of them gently that we don't hit. I never raise it with the parent! Op -

    My daughter bites so I'd love to see her reaction to that. Her reaction was totally inappropriate..
