I've whacked jasper and screamed when he was three years old, breast fed to sleep started to pull back and them full jaw clamped and locked down on my nipple.
.... I challenge anyone to remain calm with their nipple stuck in a bear trap....
*edit* and still not even that hard. Didn't even wake him he DID let go. Thank goodness. His breast feeding days were numbered after that!

#1 I would firstly get the child to stop - hopefully by a verbal instruction, but if that failed then physical restraint. I would then explain to them that the noise was unacceptable and disrupted other people. I would also scan the area to find a place where they could run or dance or spin around to let off some steam, and give them position to do so in that space, as long as they did so quietly.
#2 Spitting in someones face is unacceptable. The child would be told this was unacceptable and instructed to sit still for a few minutes. If they were incapable of doing so they would be restrained until they stopped struggling, and then required to sit still for a few minutes. After which time it would be suggested for them to get up and use up some energy.
#3 Whilst I don't believe I would tollerate being hit from a 5yo, I must admit that I have with a 3yo. DD3 repeatedly hit me out of frustration when she was young, and I spent a lot of time ignoring that behaviour. It was only directed at me, so she wasn't hurting anyone else, and thus I was able to do so. Thankfully she grew out of it by the time she was 4yo. Sometimes I would ignore her, sometimes I would physically restrain her. Sometimes I would try to explain to her that I loved her very much and didn't like it when she hurt me.

OP I think it's good your re giving the mums other chance - the way the child spoke so beautifully to your child shows that the parents are doing something right. He hasn't learned those types of words from nowhere. Hopefully with some gentle advice to help from people like you the mum can build on what she's doing well and do better.
