Today while at the bus stop with my kids this morning a woman was yelling and cussing at her son (I dont know what he did) she was pretty much belittling him. What do you think? Would you report it?

I think it is child abuse but Cps rarely does anything about emotional abuse. They can't prove it.

Spanking and hitting is child abuse.

It doesn't matter how horribly we treat children.... nobody cares unless a bone is broken

Verbal abuse, definitely. can't believe she was doing it publicly too.

Yes I would report it. Why not rock someone's family with petty things.

I don't think cps would do anything about that, yes that is abuse, I would have looked at her like her face was melting off just so she knew I saw and heard her, if nothing else but to make her think about it later
