    Default *Trigger warning* Would you report it?

    So this afternoon I went to my local coles to grab a few things. .and what I witnessed sickened me..A mother (if you can call her that) kicked her child in the head twice. The child was about 5 maybe 6 and was lying on the floor carrying on a little. She kicked him twice and it wasn't just a nudge. .there was force behind it then she grabbed him by his shirt and picked him up yelling at him..I actually spoke uo as I was behind her and said..are you right? ? Thats not necessary and asked the young boy if he was ok..she promptly told me to f off and mind my own business. I had my young daughter in my arms so wasn't much else I could do because obviously my childs safety is important too..I've posted it on my facey page saying how disgusted I was and have received advice t9 report it to the police. .my friend works there and has said they may be able to get footage..will the police do anything? Would you report it? I just worry what his home life must be like if that's the treatment he gets in public. I'm not a perfect parent by any means but geez..poor little fella.

    Yes l would report it.
    If the woman carries on like that in public it wouldn't surprise me if she did much worse at home when people couldn't see.

    The mum needs some form of help maybe mental health, or anger management.

    That is truly sickening. Yes, I would report it particularly if there is the possibility footage could be provided. There is no possible explanation in the world that could make that treatment of a child remotely ok, and they deserve much better.

    Are you ok after seeing that? I would be traumatised I think.

    I would report it and hopefully the boy (and any other children) can be kept safe and the mum (and dad?) can get some help with anger management/mental health etc.

    Yeah, I would report it to child safety. Not sure which State you are in but if you Google "Child Safety" and your State you should find a 24 hour reporting number. I would also report it to the Police though as they will have to do some leg work to identify the mother and her child. Reporting it to both agencies often increases the chances that the response will be timely and adequate. Good luck.
