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.
