    I would have told her that she is going to regret what she has just done then

    then sit down and continue my time at Macca's and wait for her to leave then follow her and ask her WTH her problem was and blah blah chances are she will talk with her fist and I will have to defend myself.

    IF it was DH she would be picking herself up of the floor. The only time he hits a woman is if they purposely hurt his children.

    You reacted in a very polite civilized way.

    Alot of people SAY what they would do in your situation and I could do the same, but alot of it is what one would WANT to do in that situation. And while you are shocked and upset with what happened, you are not looking back on the situation with your head in your hands hating yourself for your reaction.

    And, to be honest the police have better things to do than arresting a mother that smacked a child in a play-ground. Punched maybe. I know that sounds horrible, but think before suggesting someone go off on a wild goose chase.

    OP you handled it with amazing restraint. As I'm sure you have already done, but make sure you cuddle your boy and make sure he knows he didn't do anything wrong. The chalk it up to experience and leave it in the past. The woman in question will pay for this with karma, she sounds like a miserable b*tch with a miserable life.

    I would have called the police. If she can smack a small child infront of his mother i wonder what she would have done if there was noone around. she sounds like a down right bully!

    I can understand being over protective and getting upset if a child intentionally hurt my child especially if they are older then my DD, but i wouldn't ever hit another persons child, i don't even like smacking my DD or nieces/nephews if they are naughty.

    My DD was playing at a park one day, she was about 3 maybe 4yrs old and some bully kid who would have been atleast 8, pushed her with 2 hands backwards trying to get her off the top of a slippery slide platform (it was 6ft high the platform), i was standing next to her because she was little and had to catch her. I told the kid to be careful she was only little and there was enough room for them both to play, it's parent ended up coming over and told me off for talking to her kid? ermm... your kid picks on a child half its age and at the very least half it's size and your having a go at me for asking it to be careful? wtf?

    I would like to think I would of just called the police but honestly I probably wouldve at least grabbed her arm after she hit him and threatened her or if it was a particulary bad day I wouldve smacked her back.

    Op I think you did the best you could in the situation. I can't imagine you were expecting it and we never know how we'll react. I do think you should have her charged though. What an absolute idiot

    I cannot even begin to think about what I would do if even a member of my family smacked DD, let alone a complete stranger. I would have probably called the police and charged her for hitting my child. What an absolute cow!

    Speechless. Obviously a disgusting exuse for a human being. My heart is melting for you little man. Good on you for not lowering yourself to her level.
    As for me, I really can't say what I would do if someone smacked my child; I've never hit anyone in my life and HATE confrontation, but when your child is involved your inhibitions generally fly out the window. I know for a fact I would have had a go at her and know it's not "right", but she's the bully (smacking a 2 year old) not your son.
    I hope karma gets her.

    Yep, just read DH this thread and agree a "woman" loses the right to be treated like a lady when she smacks your child. Not saying he would knock her out, but she wouldn't have wanted to mess with him when it comes to parental insticts and I wouldn't blame him.
    How DARE she touch your child? The more I think about this, the angrier I get!

    I'm actually a bit shocked and saddened by how many people said they would hit her back. I get people will do anything to protect their kids, but that is not the way to go about it. If you hit someone like that you are doing nothing but stooping to their level and putting yourself and your child in even more danger.
