Those brats kept pinching my kid so...

We were at a friends house. They have twin four year old terrors. They are the meanest boys you will ever meet. THeir parents have absolutely no control over them. They have the run of the house and its sick.
I have two kids. They are three and seven.
All our kids were playing together- well my two were trying to play and their two were being demons.Anyway we were about to leave, so my husband goes into the playroom and says "ok kids time to clean up" He proceeded to help them clean up while I helped the mom in the kitchen. Those kids kept pulling my dd's hair and pushing my son. All night long the parents had been threatening these kids and not following through on anything. I mean nothing. One of them hit his mom and she just let out this big sigh- that was it. Well back to the playroom- they got close to my son to push him again and my husband pinched the pressure point on his neck. He yelled a little bit and started cleaning. He didnt even look in my son's direction again.
We wont be going back over there. I can take their horrible behavior.

Your husband should NOT have put his hands on a kid that wasn't his.  you should have confronted the parents instead.  But I don't blame you for not wanting to go over there any more.

they didnt even discipline the children when they hit them(their parents)

I would have maybe not done the pressure thing on the neck but something close like grab his hand or arm. But yeah, I wouldn't be going back. I can't deal with the whole "I just don't know what to do with them about them (sigh)" crap either. Dd and I may hang out with someone like that one time, but that's it.

 Honestly you should have just got up and left right then.. There's no excuse for him to put his hands on another child, no matter how out of control they are.  But it's done, and over with..  But I'd talk to him about NOT doing something similar again no matter what, certain people can turn something "small' into a lawsuit.. and fast.

oh dont worry. we will not be going over there for a long time. it was all I could do to last through dinner.

they always say "oh your son is so sweet. how do you get him to behave so well"

for one- I dont let him have free run over everyone. He was taught respect from day one.

A lot of moms will bash but I say go dad! We went to the jump house and a terror started slamming my 15 month Oldsmobile head into a plastic slide( he wasn't supposed to be in that area) then my DD 4 comes out of a bounce house saying someone was hitting her and I look in and its the terror, I had already tried to find his parents with no luck so I let him have it. I told him he needs to keep his hands to himself and asked if he likes it when he gets hit...along with some other things he looked pike he was about to cry after. Dhs then goes to DD he puts his hands on u again you punch him and showed her how to do it....a little less tactful but hey kids gotta learn to defend herself and honestly if ur kids a terror don't let them run rampid slamming babies heads into thing repeatedly in a section he's to old to he in!
