I wouldn't hit an 8yr old kid, I know there is a lot of consequences to that action. I was just saying what I would of loved to do and what I wanted to do, and if in my perfect world it was ok to do that then I'd do it without hesitation. I don't think many people understand why some people hate to be touched or w/e but its one of the things that pisses me off the most. Then, to get a little brat disrespect me and actually hit me...arrrgh. I HATE kids.
I probably can't tell his mom, shes a typical Mexican mother that defends each kid as if they would never do something bad. What I will probably do is tell his sister to keep him away from me and let my floor manager know bout this. I won't tell him about the little boy hitting me but rather tell him that they are taking time away from me and that way he will do something about it.
The only thing consistent in life is change.
