    I would still report it even if it doesn't go anywhere. Just to release some anger

    I would absolutely pursue it and have the footage sent to the police. At the very least they could track her down through her uniform and talk to her. They may not be able to prove anything happened but if they show up to her work and ask questions it might give her a wake up call and make her stop and think before treating a child like that again in future. I would hope she would be $hitting herself if the cops showed up asking her about what happened. She might even admit what she did - especially if she doesn't think grabbing a finger is a big deal.

    For the record I think you handled it really well. You stuck up for your daughter and made your point without going too far and scaring the kids. I always worry if I was in a situation like that I might take it too far.

    I agree with all of this.

    If she thinks grabbing an unknown child's finger and taunting them is fine, I wonder what she would do to the child in her care?

    I also think that we often 'play down' incidents because we don't want to seem lime making a fuss, but for me, I'd rather escalate the complaint as high as I could to show my child that I was supporting them and doing what I could to keep them safe.

    Hope your DD is ok.

    Definitely report it. The way the lady reacted to your daughter was completely uncalled for. That's terrible! I can't believe she did that to your dd. I hope your dd is ok

    As for what I would do, I would probably report it security and I would have blown my top at the lady.

    I would still ask for the footage to be sent to the police and make an official statement. She may be known, or be about to be known. It's absolutely worth doing. You may never see her again, but her grandchildren do. Her behaviour isn't okay, but she doesn't realise this.
    Report it.

    I think the main reason I'd forward the footage to the police is because it frightens me that these people are willing to do things like this in public, so what are they willing to do behind closed doors.

    I will always and have before multiple times called the police on parents/ people who not only physically hurt their children in public, but also verbally abuse their kids in public. You never know, or may be that one phone call/ report that saves a child. Sounds extreme but in this day in age, it's so important that someone is looking out for children.

    In saying all that, I'm very paranoid and don't like taking risks with things like this. I'd rather be wrong than not do anything at all.

    I would've probably done the same as you. That is a horrible thing for her to do.

    If you feel up to it tomorrow then report it. You can possibly speak to the information/concierge/centre manager if there is one - especially if it is an employee of a store in the centre.

    Lots of hugs. Hope your DD is ok.

    Eta - saw your update.
