And another one.

Step dad slaps boy in the face who he believed had bullied his stepdaughter.

I was hoping we'd get to see the video. ;D

your 39-year old son is still in kindergarten?

Same. They had communications 28 years ago when I started kindergarten and still do today. I can't imagine a bus driver not having any way to communicate with others.

I find it extremely disturbing that you enjoy watching videos of children being attacked by adults.

*rolls eyes*

I don't know I've ever seen a grown man "slap" anyone, and thought that was an odd behavior.

Interestingly, I found a GoFundMe (raised 125 of 10K for the dad's legal issues) and a facebook article, where pretty much everyone says the girl was the actual bully and everyone's afraid of her.

Now they've got another reason to fear her - her step dad is a nut and goes around slapping people.

Interesting story.

This child has issues that need to be addressed... But not by an adult punching him.


Punching a child may at times be totally legal and justified.

OK, this situation is probably outside the boundaries of being legal......but it really sounds like
the Kid is getting a taste of his own medicine.

Default The hell?

Seems about right for the mentality of today's America.

I would've expected this from a millennial parent than any other generation but this is still way wrong.

In no way is right to hit a child in the manner she did. People think she's justified 'cause the kid hit her own—

—and I will repeat: Under no circumstance is it OK to hit/beat a child.

If that lady wanted to pull the kids ear, then fine. My millennial peers would disagree but at the end of the day, her real target should have been the parent of the trouble-making kid.

I'm just glad there was footage of this horrible event so that whatever results, evidence is there.

There's a difference between a grown adult beating someone for something that's obviously wrong and an infant doing the same for a toy.

Today, it's 'cause a toy was "stolen" from them. Tomorrow, it could be just 'cause they don't like someone.

It's a mundane and impulsive behavior that can escalate. I can only hope that you're there to teach them that violence isn't always the answer.
