So my son was at a Mcdonalds with his mother my wife. In the midst of the playing my wife noticed my son trying to retrieve his toy from a slightly older and taller boy. My son snatched the toy back telling the kid no. The boy proceeded to SPIT on my child!. Along with another child about 2 years old. My son does not spit on other kids and proceeded to kindof sit back and not retaliate. He backed up into a corner. My wife of course yells out to tell the kids to stop. The parents of the older boy said nothing. The mother of the younger girl softly and unenthusiastically told her to stop. My wife called him over and per my instructions when my son is being bullied she told him that if it happens again, he is to punch the kids in the mouth. My son of course has never and i'm sure has no intention of ever striking another human being. (other than me, the kid hits a ton)
So my question is what parent on here would not instantly and deliberately punish a child for spitting. I couldn't believe that behaviour would go unpunished. I bet they wouldn't like it if my son had actually gave the little 7 year old a busted lip. Even the little 2 year old girl. My son is 5. I dont like bullies. period.
