A stranger told off my child, what should I do?

It’s understandable that you would be upset if a stranger scolded your child. However, it’s important to approach the situation calmly and objectively.

First, try to understand the stranger’s perspective and the reason behind their behavior. It’s possible that they were trying to teach your child a valuable lesson or protect them from danger. If the stranger’s behavior was inappropriate or harmful, you may want to consider speaking to a supervisor or manager if the incident occurred in a public place, or contacting the authorities if necessary. Additionally, it’s a good idea to talk to your child about what happened and provide support and guidance as needed.
