I have 3 daughters so I get the parenting thing. I would have taken my child to the opposite end of the swim area and enjoyed the water. You could either ignore the cussing and hope your daughter does as well. Or you take the opportunity to explain to your daughter how not to behave. You had no right to disipline those other kids and your attempt only made it worse. As a last resort, you could have left and gone to the playground. Obviously the kid was stopped by a mother's back hand....so I think a .40S&W is a little overkill. I think your daughter would suffer much more seeing her father kill a boy in cold blood compared to hearing a few f bombs. I am sure that many will disagree with me....and that's fine. You asked for opinions, and this is mine.
I respect the fact that you expressed your opinions however I think it is liberal mind set that is driving society completely in the wrong direction. So walk away, no right correcting another hmmm. What are you going to do when a young man dating your daughter thinks he can take additional liberties? Still think you have no rights to correct him? If more people stood up and re-enforced the basic values it can only benefit. Now we can use the wide brush technique and say it is usually the woman who has 6 kids from 12 different men on government assistance that continues to breed this in society but it is not I see it all over. *******s come in all race, religion, creed and color and they tend to breed the same.
