I try and promote gentle discipline with my DD but I will admit that I have spanked her on ocassion. It's always her butt and always my hand and I know it doesn't physically hurt her because I hit her harder when we are horse playing. My neighbors however are very loud and physical with their kids. I'm not sure if I want my DD around them and their foul language but I don't know if I'm over reacting.
1. Austin was trying to hug my DD and DD wanted to run away from him. Well like any other 18 month old he didn't want to let go of her. His mother came over there and I kid you not started screaming and repeatedly hitting him that he was not to grow up to be a rapist!
2. I don't know what lead up to this but Austin smacked DD upside her head and pushed her. His mother once again flew into a rage spanking him and screaming that he was going to turn into a wife beater.

No you're not over reacting I would be on the phone to CPS in a heart beat if I was there. And for her to be physically and mentally abusive to him right in front of you then I would wonder how she acts behind closed doors.
