I was in a department store today when a mother walloped her daughter right in front of me, just because her daughter had dropped some chips in the pram.
I was so shocked and upset be the incident, and the daughter was obviously very upset by it.
I feel guilty for not saying something to the mother, or for somehow sticking up for the daughter who was not only hurt and upset, but embarrassed it had happened in public.
What is the right thing to do in such a situation ?
Have I the right to say something to the mother, who clearly can't control her temper ?
What would you have done ?
