Is it a low income parent thing to scream at and smack their kids in public?

Cause I'm in a poorer neighborhood at the moment and this old lady on a store scooter keeps screaming at the kids with her and I saw her slap one. I like saw them twice in the store and each time this lady is screaming. My parents never did this I just got privileges take away and grounded

It's probably just how she was brought up. It's not an excuse but I bet she has had to live a harder life than you and me. I think she needs help because it's not good for those kids either.

[@780464,Lostpoet] screaming and slapping your kids is wrong. I feel sorry for the kids.
It is illegal to smack kids in my country. You used to see it happen in stores several years ago but never now.

[@1507,Rusham] it should be illegal everywhere

Poor parenting isn't based on income level. They are everywhere

A liberal thing
[@9463,MasterLee] Be careful as a few simple democrats are hanging around today, with there usual vile and nasty comments

[@585989,Lissa] she wasnt that's the weird thing
[c=#4C0073]she's obviously very stressed, .. not an excuse i know, but still .. not a low income thing[/c]

[@26363,rowena] doesnt mean she can beat on the kids

[@26363,rowena] and she could be stressed Because of low income

A lot of low income people aren't taught about acceptable social behaviors.
If you are a good parent, then there is no need to smack kids...
