    Default Wwyd woman just hurt my child

    So we were just at a local shopping centre in one of those free child play things, my little girl aged 3 was playing with this little toy that has one ball that you send through a maze...

    This little boy similar age came over and tried to take the ball off her and she yelled' no that's my turn' I didn't say anything as she had waited for her turn and had just started playing with it and the boy just walked away not fussed when I went to the other side to check on DS who was up the back... I heard my Dd scream and looked around and this woman had my daughters finger and was holding it saying 'you share little girl' my Dd was trying to pull her finger free and since this woman wouldn't let go it was bending backwards.

    I immediately walked up and said 'hey don't you dare touch my child' she says 'shut up it was just her finger and she yelled at my grandson' I stated if she had a problem with my daughter she was welcome to speak to me but reiterated that she was never to touch mine or any other child.

    She then said 'your child is a brat and you can't be a bully all your life' to which I replied 'why not it's obviously worked for his grandmother' I told DD it was time to go which the lady said nastily to my Dd ' good idea Dd get out of here'

    I walked away but I'm really fuming and I'm wondering if I should have said/ done something different. Dd was actually really shaken up by the whole incident. I have half a mind to report the incident to security (she had on one of the local stores uniforms) but I'm wondering if maybe that's going a bit far but I'm really upset

    I would report to police. How dare she touch your child no matter what had happened.
    Everything should be on security footage.
    I hope your DD is ok.

    😲 That is deplorable! I hope your dd is okay x

    I would report it to the business that she works for, as well as centre management.
    While she is in uniform, she has an obligation to maintain a good persona, so I'd be surprised if they don't take it seriously.

    Report! If she had on a uniform and you can recognise her absolutely report her...to the police.
    I would also contact her work place and let her manager know how she behaves in public branding their name.

    Report to police and then let the place she works at know what she did while in uniform and let them know you've reported to the police. I wouldn't be surprised if she got fired.

    Definitely not over reacting. Nobody should your child at all, no matter the situation. I can't say I would have remained so calm in the same situation. Hope your DD isn't too shaken.

    I would be reporting to the police, centre security and the place she works. That is revolting behaviour.

    Your poor little dd. I'd report to the police/centre and make a formal complaint. As she had a top of advertising where she worked I would also make note of that in the report.

    That is appalling. Seriously. What a nasty piece of work.

    As this is a wwyd, not what you should do, I would probably not do anything. I would be very upset but move on after a few days, but be very weary going there again. I certainly not go to the police as I'd feel silly making a fuss over it. And making such a big deal to further upset my dd. And I'd be scared of the repercussions, like she'd get my details and retaliate, as she seemed like that kind of person.
    At best I'd email the store about it, but I'm not sure if they have access to CCTV, if there was any recording at the time. It'll be her word against yours. It wouldn't surprise me if nothing came of it.

    I guess for you it's more the type of person you are (I HATE confrontation and avoid it wherever possible, I get anxious) and how much you want to make of it. And whether any of it would be of any benefit to your daughter.

    I'm so sorry for you and your daughter. There are some awful people out there. Hugs xxx
