I was suprised by this......

I was in Target's parking lot when i overheard a mom say to her daughter...probably about 3yrs old......shut the F**K up or i will smack the SH** out of you!!! I would NEVER talk to anybody like that.....especially NOT my children. I was hurt by this and wanted to say something to the mother, but i had my 3 youngest with me. I think that it is sad when children are being abused like this? Even when i do get frustrated with my children I am able to control myself and not react out of anger. Just wanted to express what i experienced...thanks.

  • Wow.  Lets hope she just lost control for a moment and doesn't normally talk to a baby like that.

  • I won't censor my self for children... So yeah, I've said that kind of thing, it's better than actually hitting them.

  • Oh that is so sad :(

    I worry that this kind of violence is a cycle and rampant in our society.

    Poor little baby . . . the person who is supposed to be protecting is the worst enemy.
