    I wouldn't have been suprised if cops turned up at my door when it happened to me, was at school in front of a lot of parents and teachers. I'm glad it didn't happen though because it was a once off mistake and I'm glad people didn't judge (openly) for the one day when I snapped.

    There was a similar thread a year ago and I remember a hubber who had an abusive father said that regardless of what happened back at home, seeing another adult confront her father and tell him his behavior was wrong helped build her inner voice inside to know that this wasn't normal behavior and she didn't deserve it. I think you did the right thing OP.

    Agree you did the right thing, when working in a supermarket in high-school I remember one day really smacking into their kid and calling them a fing c...

    I believe you did the right thing OP. I'm not against parents smacking their children if that's what they want to do to discipline, but accross the face is unacceptable...always!! That's crossing the line into abuse IMO.

    Someone has to advocate for the child & be their voice when they're too small/scared etc to have their own.

    That would be me.
    And yes thats exactly what made me step up and defend myself and my siblings.
    In saying that I still wouldnt encourage approaching these people either 😞 its a damned if you do, damned if you dont type of situation.
    Not saying this mother wouldve done what my father did.
    OP didnt do anything wrong. Hell she did everything right. She didnt ignore it like most do. And she has big lady balls to approach the mother, definitely admire her for that.

    I remember that thread. Wasn't it about something witnessed in a library with a dad slapping his daughter?

    OP: I think you did the right thing.

    The right thing to do.

    You do have to wonder if she slapped her daughters face in public like that, what her at home temper might be like. Whether she is a mum under pressure who maybe needs some support or just a piece of trash, at least now, from you reporting it somebody can check in and make some enquiries about this little girl.

    So good job OP!

    I don't think he actually hit her if I recall correctly but was carrying on in an aggressive way about how she embarrassed him for being shy?
