We were driving down the road today, and there was two about 12 year old boys fighting. One of the kids was trying to walk away and leave the fight scene. The other kids parents were behind him yelling keep hitting him, hit that m'fer, so on and so forth... And it really made me mad that parents would behave in this manner!! How childish and ignorant can they be? It really irked me and I was wishing and wishing that the boy would be taken into custody by DHS and the parents would go straight to jail... but I don't think it is that easy, unfortunately, but what would you think, would you want them to be sent to jail?Answer Question

Well I would never do a thing like that, but what did you do after witnessing that?

Legally if I came upon that situation, by law, I have to call the plice and report that situation. In a manner that also doesn't put me at risk. I worked as a therapist and many children that were my clients were told by their parents to beat the shit out of anyone who messes with them. Funny how when they do that there are real life consequences: like their child then goes to jail and is then court ordered to see someone like me. And the parents still don't get it. For as long as any parents who tell their children it is better to hit first, hit harder, ect....there will be kids who go to jail, kids who are seriously hurt, and later kids who grow up and turn into adults who don't respect human life and others' lives. That is what happens. And parents get mad they are inconvenienced by the consequences. They don't have time for courts or judges or social workers. Don't have time for it? Teach your kids non violence

That is sad. Self-defense is OK, but retaliation is just wrong.
