This video of a 9 year old boy kicking and hitting younger children has been viewed by tens of thousands. Those who have seen this display of violent behavior are outraged.
When you place your child in daycare you trust that those in positions of authority will nurture and develop your child. Instead you discover your child has been abused. That's what happened to this man when he saw his child's injuries. He over reacted by slapping the wrong child. One bad behavior leads to another bad behavior; this is the cycle of violence.
The daycare worker in charge was fired and may face charges; the man who slapped the wrong child faces charges. Adults are supposed to be the responsible ones and teach children violence doesn't solve problems. In this case the adults were terrible examples of responsible behavior.
