I heard a violent argument between a mother and her child.
Obviously it was the child's mistake and he said something really really bad that must have hurt mother's feelings. His words made everybody around go ballistic also.
At that moment, the mother gave her bad son a big slap in the face. I believe that normal people would not be able to have good control over their feelings under such circumstance.
Her son, although looks like about ten years old, seemed to at least understand what a lawsuit is. He claimed that he would sue his mother.
Is "slapping a badly-behaved child" against the law in US? Will that mother be sent into jail ?
