    I would of thought thank goodness she's taken control of the situation.

    Are we really judging parents parenting choices still? It's like BF, FF all over again. Everyone has different choices. Sigh...

    I probably would not say anything to the parent but I hate any abusive behaviour, be it hitting or yelling and would have felt very uncomfortable. If it was something my child had been aware of I also would have talked to him about how the little boy had been doing the wrong thing but so had the mummy and that there are better ways of dealing with it. Why people still think hitting a child for hitting another child is a good idea is beyond me.

    I wouldn't bag said anything. If it was my son and he was acting like that I would know there was something wrong (overtired, unwell etc) and would have taken him home.

    I don't agree with smacking at all. If my kids acted like that I would have been constantly "we don't hit" "be gentle" etc but if it kept happening 1 warning that we would leave if it happened again Id go home.

    Neither of my kids have been that bad though. DD went through a hitting stage 🙊 man it was HARD! But I don't see how smacking them for hitting is going to get the point across, mixed signals big time!

    I would have taken my child home. No most of the time I don't judge parents that smack (unless it's abusive). But I would have wondered if the mother made the correlation that she hitting her child for hitting, and that it must be confusing?

    I dont agree with smacking personally, but if her kid was being that feral i would have been happy that his mother stepped in at all.

    So many kids are allowed to run free these days ( my brothers included ) and it does my head in when Mums dont deal with them.

    I think good on her for disciplining her child. I've experienced at playgroup a child like that except the mother didn't do a thing. Guess what?? I no longer go to that playgroup coz the negative impact it had on my DD wasn't worth it. And "time outs" don't always work for everyone. She had a problem kid and she dealt with him. It was against YOUR standards but so what??
    Honestly can't people just butt out.

    If that was me I would of taken DD home but perhaps this mum didn't want to go home. Perhaps this is her only outing and wanted the adult interaction.

    Default Smacking - would you have said something/ do you agree

    I personally will smack my child if they are being naughty and all other methods have been exhausted and proved useless. I would sooner leave then snack them in public though, not because I am ashamed or doing anything wrong, but because of the judgemental looks I'd get from others, like other mums on this thread. I think good on this mum for disciplining her child. Because I'm sure if she didn't there's be another thread on here about the awful mother who didn't discipline her brat child at playgroup. Can't win.

    I don't think anyone has judged though? They've simply said it's not something they would have done. I do personally wonder the message that hitting a child for hitting another child teaches them. But I also don't think a tap on the bum is necessarily abusive.

    I smacked my kids and im not ashamed.. as soon as the were crawling, they got a tap on the hand if they were doing the wrong thing... Children need discipline and everyone has their own way of doing it..

    I would never smack a child on the face etc and never use anything but my hand...

    I have smacked my 2 in public and if anyone had ever said anything I would have said my child not yours..

    No matter how we raise our kids, there will always be someone who judges you.. As long as you know you are doing right by your child, thats all that matters.
