Why do parents do this to their children?

While in a store today I saw a few things that parent's did to their children that make me want to literally burst into tears... One woman was pushing a toddler in a shopping cart. The toddler dropped a small piece of pretzel on the ground. When the mother noticed that she flipped, slapped the little one and proceeded to yell at her for being a nuisance. The little one was literally crying and hiding her face in her hands. The only good thing here was that her father showed up and took his daughter away into the mall only after ripping the mother apart in front of other customers. His last words to her were "That is the last time you lay a hand on my daughter. Find your own way home."

Someone saw my friend beat gina in the superstore with a cooking spoon. She followed her home and got her address. she reported her to child welfare. It was the best thing that happened for my friend. She was in a horrible living situation. she was given case workers people came to the home to allow her to go out food shopping. She was able to go to the laundry for two hours. She got therapy and mental health care for all of her children. When I was in a store i saw a woman beat her son for a juice. I went outside to the front of the store.I called the police and told them what she was wearing and what she did. I told them what cashier they could also speak to. I then left the store because here that could get me killed. In life, it's best to look for ways to help in any way you can. Onlookers and gossip help no one. That woman that followed my friend home did something awesome for her.She needed help.You never know what people are going though at home. Not saying she has any right to beat the child. But there are cultures where that is normal. I hope more people would figure out a way to help if anything at all. it could save a life.
