I was leaving the Dollar Store with Sean this afternoon and saw a a mom and teenage daughter yelling at each other while we were walking by them to our car. The mother slapped her teenage daughter in the face, a younger daughter ran into the store, and while the mother and teenager were having it out, a younger son came out of the van to try to help his mom. She yelled at him and asked him what he wanted. He said “I was just trying to help you, mom”. She screamed at him, “I don’t need your help, punk… you’re just a little punk!” Then she turned around to scream at her teenage daughter some more. The little boy ran over to a light pole and sat down. Then his mom kept screaming, “Junior, get in the van! Junior, get back in the van!”… over and over again. The boy was just sitting at the light pole crying, and he refused to get back into the van. I wouldn’t have wanted to get into the van either. I tried to get Sean into the car as fast as I could… I didn’t want him seeing that kind of behavior. I was wishing that I could do something to help, but I had no idea what to do, so I got in the car and went home, but my heart was just aching for those kids. What would you have done?
