I'm in a private group on FB and yesterday a woman shared an incident with her 4 years old daughter and a 6 years old neighbor boy. Her daughter was outside playing alone and she heard the boy call her daughter a bitch, she gets to the door and sees the boy pulling on her while calling her the word again. She goes over gets her daughter has some words with the boy asks him where his mom is, he says she's at the store she tells him that when his mom comes back to bring her to her apartment. Turns to leave he calls her fat and something else while saying he has no intention on telling his mom. This woman who admittedly doesn't know or have any kind of relationship with his mother decides to take off her belt and beat this child! When people asked was she going to talk to the mother she was talkingg about "what I need to talk to her for, I handled him!" Others were commending her and applauding her for straightening this wayward kid out. I was like "praise God it wasn't mine because I'd be at the county facility getting fitted for an orange jumpsuit!"
Now, I must admit I can't stand a disrespectful child, oh goodness that just singes the fine hair on the crack of my hind quarters. However, I have serious problems with a beat a kid down avenger feeling like it's her right to administer justice, yet in my opinion was scared to address the mother. Others were like "that's how it used to be, the neighborhood would beat your ass" I'm curious to know what the hell kind of neighborhood did theses people grow up in, because my mommy didn't tolerate her children being used as target practice for the block. If there was a problem you take it to her and then she fixed it. So, I want to know if you were the mom of the little girl how would you have handled the situation, and as the boy's mom how would you deal with a virtual stranger beating your child?
