Want to be very general here. DD goes to an afterschool club which is not I don't think run by the school, an instructor comes in. She said 'I will slap anone who make xxx mistake'.DD did make that mistake and she slapped her arm.
I have had corroboration of events from another child there who said it wasn't a hard slap but definitely a salp.When I asked whether them if it was done in a jokey way they said they weren't sure -maybe it was.
It doesn't sit easy with me and obviously DD would not have told me about it if she hadn't thought it odd. She is 10. would you m,ention it to anyone?

Yes, you should definitely mention it. Even if it was said as a joke, it's not acceptable.

If it was meant as a joke, the lady should have known your DD well enough to know whether or not she would understand and take it as such. Clearly she did not, so at best this was misguided.

I suspect it was a joke but it's a very foolish joke for anyone working with children to do.

I have spoken to the school about it but they say it is nothing to do with them.All they do is rent the hall to this woman's business.
I don't know who to go to because she is the business owner.

Well, you go to her, obviously.

I was on your other thread, you didn't seem to know who was running the club which, to be honest, given you were leaving your child there, I found odd.

Now you do, so you go and play hell with them.
