You see a mother in a supermarket slap her child.
Vous voyez une mère dans un supermarché donner une gifle à son enfant.
As long as the child's OK, nothing. It's not my place to interfere.
Double check that she did indeed slap the child and then make sure the cituation is ok.
I am not sure. Would probably not do or say anything though.
I don't get involved.
I glare at her. I do the same to mothers or fathers who verbally abuse their children repeatedly telling them they're stupid or to shut up in a crass manner. Though people discipline their children differently and we might not know why the parent felt the need to slap the child. Did the children swear? Say something inappropriate to or about another shopper. Since I don’t believe in physical discipline, I would glare or shake my head. And since I don’t believe in children being rude or swearing, if I heard such a thing from a child, I might tell them they out to listen to their mother.
I laugh and try not to look.
I would be concerned if it looked inappropriate.
I would be shocked and think that was awful, but not say anything.
I would hope that if faced with the situation I would be able to speak out against it.
I would look on in astonishment.
I would not like it, but would not intrude because the woman is older than me and would say that it is none of my business. As a teenager I do not hold much authority, but perhaps if I was an older woman.
I would probably be quite disturbed, but I wouldn't take action. It is not my place to interfere with how a mother decides to discipline her child. Unfortunately there is a lot of bad parenting evident today.
I would probably feel bad, but it wouldn't be proper for me to intervene.
I would promise myself never to be that kind of mother.
I would stay in that aisle a fair distance away in hope that my presence would keep the mother from doing it again.
I would think: that's harsh.
I'd feel sad, and be disgusted, but depending on how hard the slap was, I'd most likely just keep shopping
If the child was annoying, I would think that he/she deserved it
If the child was misbehaving, then it should be punished, but if not, then I will object, but will probably not take any action.
Ignore it if the child deserved it.
not do anything, unless it was extremely violent and clearly unreasonable.
Notice, but do nothing.
Talk to the mother first.
You say nothing. There isn't much that I feel you can say or do.
bien fait pour lui !
Ca ne me regarde pas. Je continuerai ce que je suis en train de faire.
J'ignore la situation, elle doit avoir ses raisons pour gifler son enfant en public. Si c'était une mère violente, je pense qu'elle serait plutôt du genre à ne pas le montrer en public.
je m'étonne. Si je suis avec une fille, je regarde sa réaction
je n'interviens pas car je ne sais pas quelles sont les circonstances
je ne fais rien
je ne fais rien
je ne pense pas que cela me concerne sauf si la mère est vraiment violente
je rigole ! (souvenir, souvenir)
je rigole parce que je m'en suis pris des dizaines comme ça (sauf si l'enfant n'a pas fait de bêtises)
Je trouve cela compréhensible même si sur le coup j'ai mal pour l'enfant.
rien, mais je désapprouve
