    Omg how horrible for your ds and you I would have said something similar to you. Like 'do not touch my child how dare you!' and if she were to say anything about my child hurting hers I would have said 'yes but we're the adults and supposed to be the role models' and walked off. Honestly she does sound like an absolute feral b***h. I can't believe she hit your child and said what she did. Sounds like she is taking her own insecurities out on you.

    One time when I was shopping dd was acting up abit she was a lot younger about 2 and an older lady was talking to me quite pleasantly but then she went to grab my dd and smack her hand. I quickly said oh no don't touch her she said sorry and I walked off. It's so hard to believe when it happens.

    Eta - I agree go ask macdonalds for survaliance and charge her with assault.

    Yeah I will be giving them a call this morning. Im not sure if there are camera's in the play area, but its worth finding out I guess.
    Though knowing our local law enforcement, I dont think they will charge her for assault after smacking a child on the hand.
    Yet I do agree I have to do something because it was humiliating for me and DS too and I felt like the worst mum because my son accidentally hurt this child

    Perhaps she should have been given a smack for being so rude

    I couldn't get a number plate as by the time I got DS's shoes on, she had left

    I certainly would have called the police on the spot. (but I have not been in that situation and who knows what would be going through my head at the time, it is easy for me to say I would) I am so sorry this happened to you and I cannot imagine how you must have felt.
    If indeed you do manage to get footage and track her down somehow, I would hope at the very least the police would pay her a visit and let her know her actions were absolutely disgusting. At least that may make her take a look at herself and see what an awful piece of work she is. Who hits a small child, especially someone else's?

    Wow. Op I think you handled it the best way you could. Showing your ds that your the bigger person. I hope you explained the rude behavior of the other mother. I would have said alot more. (wouldn't have hit her) but definitely preached more anger to her. Children are children, I don't condone bullying however smacking a child back for apologizing its ridiculous and plain bullying in itself.

    Sorry you and your son had to be apart of that. Hugs.

    I've been in the situation of the other lady, not the smacking part, all I did was tell all the kids to yell done when they get off the slide so no one gets bumped. It's frustrating when a bump happens and your child's upset but it's out of line to say anything to someone's elses child. I would have been happy with the apology

    Haven't read all the posts but OMG! OP you are a much less vengeful person than I! I would have whipped out the phone, snapped a pic of her, of the red mark on DS, and even her car rego if possible (for id purposes) then grabbed details of any witnesses willing to make a statement and been off to the local police station- what she did was assault- she had NO right to lay hands on your poor son. I would be livid, and I would have her charged. What an awful woman- absolutely criminal.

    I'd have gone and got the manager told him to call the police or I'd have called on spot and if she tried to leave I'd have gone and got her number plate and had her charged with assault.

    They'd have no choice. You can be charged with assault for shoving someone as long as intent can be proved. Deliberately hitting someone's child (as any available footage will show) is pretty hard to deny. She likely wouldn't get into a great deal of trouble depending on her criminal record/history- if it's a first offence she could receive a section 10- no conviction recorded, but if she had a previous record (even minor) she would be penalised (not gaol or anything) but I tell you what, the experience of going to court, after being charged, maybe fined or having to pay costs etc, would sure as hell prevent her from assaulting a stranger's child ever again, I bet.

    I'm so sorry you and your DS had to go through that. What a horrible woman. I think calling this morning and taking it further is a good idea.
