A father slaps his kid in public! What do you do?




I read this post, by Sharkooseh... and it brought back a distinct memory of another incident I witnessed about two months ago in Mecca Mall...


It was in the expansion, a book fair was going on and the place was crowded when A young man slapped his 7 year old kid in the face, because the kid was shouting and crying... the poor kid just wanted to buy something... ughhh I remember the mother's face, unable to say anything just walking as fast as she could to catch up with the crazy husband... with a huge frown on her face...


The father was furious, his face completely red, grabbed his kid by the hand and dragged him behind as he walked away real quickly...



What should you do if you see such a thing?

I agree with u, its completely wrong and unacceptable to hit the boy on his face. But, What if the boy is the most annoying and irritating kid in the world and the father is nervous by nature, it could happen at times that the father loses control and hit the kid, that does not mean that he is a bad father.

Sharkooseh,
Some parents should never be parents in the first place...

Bilal,
I know what you mean, but still I think it makes him a bad father; even if the boy is the most annoying kid in the world... there is no excuse to hit someone at this age... Add to that, in public!!! just to humiliate the kid in front of everyone...
