That incident did not happen in a vacuum, and you did not cause it. Perhaps it was a trigger, but I doubt that a parent would go off the deep end like that in public if that behavior never ever happened at home, nor would a child be hiding from his parents afraid of them, if he had never experienced an inappropriately angry and abusive reaction from his parents before.

Please know that this could possibly be a turning point that brings some positive changes into the life of that child. He is clearly hurting, based on your description.


It won't get better all at once, but the parents' abusive behavior has been identified, and in the end, that may help the child. Don't beat yourself up!
