Yes, it was hot and humid at Disney World today. The most magical place on Earth can seem much less than than sparkly during the busy summer weeks (and this week is among the busiest). However, your discomfort is no excuse to take your frustrations out on a child through abuse. Today a woman was arrested after she was seen striking and then kicking her child inside the Magic Kingdom. Sheriff deputies arrested the woman after multiple witnesses reported the incident.
I’ve seen parents do some pretty awful things to their children while touring all of the Disney parks. Usually when the Heat and humidity is an aggravating factor. Heck, I’ve often found myself frustrated when in the parks. But I take a step back, visit some air conditioning, or get a drink of water. If I’m still frustrated, I leave.
We don’t know what drove this woman to abuse her child, but perhaps we can share some strategies for keeping control of your anger when in the parks on a hot and busy day like today.
