I'm afraid if that was me if be the one facing police charges as I would have gone totally mama bear on her and literally tried to rip her limb from limb... Then regretted it as is not the example I would want to set for my kids :/
I would give the police a call though and see what they can do. I would want her to know that she can't get away scot free for treating a child like that.
Big hugs to you and your daughters x

We called spotlight who do have cameras in and out of store, however referred us to the police, as they can obtain the footage.
The Police were fantastic, were really nice to the girls in taking a statement. The girls were high fiving them when we left, and leaving school early so that they could do this, was long forgotten!
The Police were disgusted. This was over a shopping basket at the end of the day. One that they will clearly see dd1 putting down and saying sorry. They were pleased however that I didn't knock her on her sorry a..., and commended me on showing my children that 2 wrongs don't make a right. I was honest and told them I definitely felt like it, I was already just in a bit of pain.
I work in healthcare in a role that sees me get spat on by patients, so I'm aware of risk control. While gross, dd1 doesn't need medical attention, just a good cuddle and a safe place to vent it out.
Thanks so much for all your support, dd1 and Dd2 were told of your love, best wishes, and no tolerance for this yucky person xo

I would have called the cops ! Isn't what she did assault ?
Good on you for exercising self control.

Yuk! I'm ashamed that it happened in Perth! So sorry you & your DD's had to experience this! Good on the police for taking it seriously, it will go a long way to help your girls get over it, someone of authority validating how wrong it is will help them so it very clearly as terrible behaviour!

Good on you for following it up with the police. I'm still amazed there is a "person" out there who would actually intimidate and spit on a child.

I hope your daughter isn't too upset about it. It was a disgusting act & the woman should be charged-or get help because I seriously think anyone who would do that would have a serious mental illness.

I wouldn't have even thought twice about punching her face in. Sounds awful, but it would have been pure instinct. It's never ok to spit on someone let alone a kid. Can you press charges or something? She shouldn't get away with that.

Good thing you reported it to the police. Privacy aside, I kind of wish someone would upload it on the internet and her face would be shown on tv.
Cannot believe it happened though.

So glad that you've followed through with the police report. Hopefully it will help your DD know that she is worth more than how this lady treated her. I tried to post earlier today but it wasn't working. Please give her a big hug from all of us.
