I was taking a walk with my friends we saw a child acting weird she was with her mother at the time and people were looking so the mother slap her child in front of the crowd and the child hit her back, Who does that i wouldn't do that but it shows how crazy people are.
How old is the child, you think? I don't think it's right for the mother to just slap her like that in public. Perhaps it was just instinctive for the child to hit the mother back because she thinks that is the way adults communicate. Just my opinion.
@HeavenlyB The girl is quite grown up to be slapped in public. The mother should have known better. When my daughter misbehaved at that age in public, I would just ignore her and straight away go home and cut short my trip. I think children's misbehaviour should be dealt with privately.

That's not exactly a “crazy story”. But it sure is a sad and ugly one. I've seen similar child-parent interactions in public. For a parent to slap a child in public or private indicates a problem with knowing how to discipline, guide, instruct and correct. For a child to be bold and brazen enough to do that to a parent in public might be an indication of a child who will become an adult who will be a threat to the society. Rude and disrespectful children don't exactly mature into model citizens who make major positive contributions to the world we live in. Hope they get their relationship worked out. I shudder to think what that child might do the parent once the parent is old and feeble.
