To have intervened and embarrassed neighbours’ DD?

I just got up, looked out of my window and just saw my neighbour’s teenage DD get smacked in the face by a boy. They were standing in a big group, laughing and messing around but it was quite a whack. I watched and thought of texting NDN but a few seconds later he grabbed her by the hair and yanked her around. I ran out, asked him WTH he was doing and told him not to touch anyone like that ever again. He denied it and mouthed off, NDN DD did the teenager dying of embarrassment thing, but he moved on.

WIBU? If it had been my DD I’d have been out there in a shot.

It really doesn't matter if they were "play fighting", I wouldn't accept that as an excuse for a boy whacking a girl in the face and then yanking her around by the hair hmm.

Bet he doesn't do that to any of the other boys there. I would have been tempted to go out and give him a good whack around the head, see how it made him feel. Wee prick!

Well done! You did the right thing. Lots would of ignored it.

Well done OP. You did exactly the right thing.

Holy shit. That boy is an abuser in training.

Thank you for standing up for her.

I'd have done the same thing because I'd want someone to help my child.

God that’s awful! What an awful boy! I can’t believe none of them intervened and said we hang on don’t hit anyone you noodle!

Definitely did the right thing.

Any reply from your text? Well done. You did the right thing, even if she hates you for it. If he's doing that to her in public, god knows what he could be doing private.

Yes, I would 100% have intervened. Many years ago, when I was only 20 or so, I witnessed a man pulling his girlfriend around roughly, and I stopped the car, and asked her if she'd like to get into my car away from him. She told me to Fuck Off. At least I tried.

You absolutely did the right thing

Well done OP. Revolting behaviour covered up as a joke. If he thinks he can get away with it now just imagine how he will treat women as a man.

Perfect as the girl didn’t have to tell on him and have that fallout. People should intervene more.

That’s exactly what I thought. He was completely denying that he did it, even though I saw him, and saying that he has his own parents to tell him what to do hmm Hopefully I embarrassed him into thinking again.

@talkingjapeneseireallythinkso we can be idiots together. I bravely stood out of stabbing range on my garden path and there are steps so hopefully he’ll be too lazy to put a brick through the window!

Reply from the dad was a text to say thanks for letting him know.

I’ve rung the school before when some of their boys were walking to school smoking weed and being gobby little oiks when I told them not to do it in front of my garage. My DC are only little and I don’t particularly want to be known as the eye-roll-inducing fusspot before they even get there. The girl’s parents are lovely and very switched on so I’m happy to leave it with them.

Of course you did the right thing. The teenage years are about learning those valuable life lessons about how we treat others and what behaviour we can expect in return.

Well done for intervening and for letting her parents know. You did the right thing.

Jez the little dick head. Every day in the new I am reading about young teenage boys assaulting young lady's.
I read a 2 disgusting cases this week, both young women viciously assaulted by their teenage boyfriends, thankfully they both went to jail.
Wtf is happening to them, their mentality is going backwards.
