Letters to the Editor

Another mother called out

Editor:

I was at Walmart earlier this month with my daughter, who is 15.

We watched from our car as a women hit her young child in his car seat.

She proceeded to yell at him – and then asked my daughter what her problem was.

After responding to her, and telling her what she had just witnessed, the woman swore at her, told her she was fat, to go on a diet and to mind her own business…

What kind of mother does this? What kind of person?

I am still in shock but so proud of my daughter for calling this “lady” out for her bad behaviour.

I hope that little boy has a merry Christmas away from child abuse.
