When you see abuse what do you do? do you stop it? or walk away

I saw abuse today

today my daughter and I was coming out of a dollar store and I saw a Mexican woman fisting her child into the car seat. I take it the child wasn't settling down so she can buckle her again and I can hear the young girls squeal and I saw the mother with a fisted hand swing on her.
. I had to step back and watch to make sure he didn't happen the second time the child settle down and she buckled .. Then I noticed the father was in the car to. And they noticed me watching. I was with my daughter and I thought to myself I cannot believe she used a fist on that child. I wrote down the license plate number. I told the police what I saw because it wasn't right that small child could be black and blue. And maybe it happens all the time if you do it in public, You'll do it in private.

i now pray for this little one

I now can only pray for this child. I hope she i ok . I know there is times to correct her child. But I believe when you use your fist it is child abuse .I hope I did the right thing

Just the other day I saw a woman screaming away at her child of about three years quite oblivious to the public around. The child just kept looking at her. I paused for a while but did not know how to respond - siva
