From what I saw, she called him a demon, THEN he threw a cookie... How the hell does that make him the little shit? For all anyone knows, the kid was minding his own damn business.
&Like someone else said, who cares where the parents were, he's 8 years old, not a toddler who needs constant supervision.

I just don't understand why people even thought he "deserved" a spanking, honestly. Two wrongs don't make a right, but I don't believe that an adult has the right to demand respect from a child whom they blatantly disrespect.

It could have been a shopping centre, the mum might have been in a different store. Who knows? I probably wouldn't allow my 8 year old to make their own way to a shopping centre, but I might let them go have a look in a different store while we are there... Really just depends on the child, more than the number, IMO.

He absolutely may have been minding his on business & if he were & an adult came up & started calling him a demon, a child who IS old enough to handle being alone WOULD see a red flag in an adult irrationally saying mean things & would walk/run away. I may choose to stand my ground, I would probably choose not to do so if it were a man that were twice my size though...because I am old enough to know that even if HE is in the wrong, *I'm* probably the one whose going to get hurt.
