I was out with my 3yr old son and my mum and step father. We were in an op shop and I was paying for items when I saw my step father whack my son over his head with the bag of shopping. I yelled don't you hit my son. Apparently he was hitting my step father. I was outraged, even so I don't believe this was right. My step father stormed off.

I know, I spoke to my son saying to hit back was not right. We don't ever use spanking as discipline here. I've lost sleep over it, definitely won't be seeing him for awhile. Thanks for your response dove :)

Your stepfather is a grown man and has no right to hit your child... ever. You do need to address it w/ your son and teach him that hitting is not acceptable... but you can't do that (stepfather can't do that) by hitting him back for it. Anyone that hit my child would not be around my child unless I could be certain that they would not do it again.
