Karen Alpert was at the playground with her son. She stepped away to the other end of the park for a moment to comfort her son’s friend who was crying. That’s when a lady came and started lashing out at her son. It seems he wanted to get on the monkey bars, when her daughter got on it too. She missed the encounter between the two but later penned this letter to the unknown lady which is gaining a lot of applause on the internet.
This letter is definitely not what you would expect:
“Dear stranger who disciplined my kiddo at the playground today,
Woah woah woah, lemme get this straight. So today your daughter was trying to do the monkey bars? Okay, got it. And my kid was trying to do the monkey bars too? Simple enough. But since your kiddo is new to the monkey bars and takes forever and sometimes gets scared and stops right in the middle, my son had no choice but to go past her and sometimes bump her a little and she would fall and be all sensitive and start crying? Hmmm. Alrighty then.
“Now before I continue, I just want to say that yes, I know I should have been there when this all went down, but unfortunately I was on the other side of the playground with my son’s friend who was crying. So no, I wasn’t there, but does that give you a right to discipline my kiddo?
Does that give you the right to talk to him sternly and tell him to knock it off? Does that give you the right to act like you are the person in charge when he is actually MY child?
Ummmm, yes. YES IT DOES.”Hergossip
