Was I Wrong To Yell At Other People's Kids?

So this afternoon I was driving out my neighborhood on my way to work and three tweens were walking in the road coming towards me. When I passed them, one of the girls threw a bucket full of birdseed on my windshield. Now, I'm normally not confrontational, but I wasn't in greatest mood today and when they threw that stuff on my windshield it just really got to me. So I whipped my car around and they started running towards their house. They ran up into their driveway and I pulled up and they were hiding behind the cars and I said,"Come here." And they just looked at me and I said,"Come here!" And they came over there and I said, "How old are you?"
"11."
"Have you ever driven a car before?"
"No."
"Okay, well, cars are dangerous. They're basically loaded guns. Cars can kill people. If you throw something on someone's windshield, you can obstruct their vision and cause them to wreck and die. You could kill someone. You say you're 11? You're old enough to know better."
And they just kind of looked at each and the little girl said,"It was a dare."
And I said,"A dare? So if they dared you to jump off a bridge, would you do it? Time to start being a leader and not a follower, kid."
They just looked at me and I said, "And now, because I had to stop and teach you all a lesson in responsibility, I'm going to be late for work. Get in your house and read a book and stay out of trouble before I call your parents."
One boy started to speak and I said,"No. This is conversation is over. Book. House. Now." And I pointed to the house and they all went inside.

Yes, I think you were wrong. You could have taught them that lesson without being so mean.

Nope I would have been talking to parents regardless but my four young children are always in the car with me and someone messing with me when they're with me will piss me off in a hurry

How was she mean? Mean would have been calling the cops or the kids parents.

Smh.

You probably handled it better than I would've. And I'm not the least bit confrontational.

It really did! I couldn't believe it, after it was over. 'Cafemom moments' don't normally happen to me in real life.

She said she yelled at them, she cut them off and would not allow them to explain themselves, she was rude and rather than explaining to them with concern she explained it to them angry and then felt the need to "punish" them by telling them they had to go inside and read. She was extremely disrespectful and in my opinion that is mean. I do not feel it is ever necessary to be disrespectful to anyone.
