How do you mother handle another person touching your child. I have a HUGE issue with strangers touching her! If I ask you stop not once, but three times to not touch my child that gives me the right to flip?! Correct?! Happened tonight, at my parents. They have a couple they are fiends who I don't really know, but just looking at them I'm not a fan..the girlfriend/wife would not leave my child alone. Constantly hovering over her, touching her area, trying to pick her up. Um when she says no she means it, when I try to intervene and you push me out of the way that gives me just cause to flip! Well I got scolded by my parents..in front of these people..and I'm 31..um really? So I said well last time I checked neither one of pushed her out of your vagina..and we left. Am I wrong?

It sounds like you handled yourself poorly and embarrassed your parents. If your child was in danger or being abused you should have left but i assume she wasn't since everyone was watching. Adults don't flip out or have bad attitudes with friends of their friends and family when they don't even know them.

If I don't want someone touching my kid and am being ignored, I will raise my voice and tell you to "Stop touching her and get away from her NOW!"  I will not be embarrassed-the one touching my kid will be.

It sounds like the child didn't want to be touched or held by that woman, and she wasn't leaving her alone. That woman was in the wrong, when a child doesn't want to be touched you don't touch them or they learn that they aren't the master of their bodies and anyone can touch them. No means no, mom had every right to stand up for her child.

Yes by excusing yourself. There is no need to act a fool.

She didn't say that.
I mean you lift your child up and go home.

To those that agree thanks, to those that don't we are all entitled to opinions, but when your child is in distress and the person keeps at it you act out, sorry. And just let everyone know I actually received an apology phone call from my mother. I guess I'm just different and don't trust people the way some do, and when it comes to my child it makes it worse. Thanks. Needless to say we will not be around those people again.
