Being a mom can be very emotional...bring out the mama lioness in you...but this was too much. Super low class and not teaching her kid anything good. He was apologizing and staying to make sure he was ok. Not even his fault just a sad accident.

The mom is at fault, get your fucking facts straight before you attack people

He shoulda whooped her a**. Nothing I dislike more than women who think they can just haul off and hit men with no consequences. It'd be one thing is he did it on purpose or something, but it was her fault her kid was running around not paying attention.

Ridiculous!

That mom is a bad excuse for a human! How about containing your child, and while you're at it, showing an example of some good manners.

The mother was totally in the wrong. The kid is little, running at roughly 3 mph, while the skateboarder is going at maybe 8-10 mph. Tell me, if you were driving at that speed and a kid ran out in front of you, not more than 50 feet ahead of you, would you be able to stop?

It's hard to tell if that's a skate run or not? The mom was in the wrong for punching. It's one of those in the wrong place at the wrong time. Feel bad for the kid. the dude you could tell he didnt know what to do =( Hope the kiddo was all good

Pay attention to your kid!

For how small the kid was the mom should not have been letting it run around like that. Obviously they were not at a playground. She'd probably blame a train for running her kid over if it laid down on the tracks.

He needs to file charges, and possibly sue her.

Ok, They were Both at Fault. He is skating in a Public Place and neither skater or child paying attention to their surroundings and upcoming obstacles. If you notice the skater is so focused on the next trick when he hits child, and child presumably running away from mom. while neither at fault but both running into each other, I put responsibility on the adult (skater). The Mom punching the skater however is a completely different matter. Anger management and a returned right cross from the skater would have done the trick. When a person closes their fist to inflict pain on another should expect the same in return. regardless of gender.

calm down.

It's a little effed at all these comments suggesting the male skater should have returned punches with the mother. First of all, it's angry mother who clearly wasn't afraid to prove a point by throwing punches, ever heard of the phrase "don't get between a momma bear and her cub?" Talk about asking for a grizzly attack. Second, there's just the plain and OBVIOUS truth of that he would have been the much worse person in the scenario to return a fist to the face to a WOMAN. yes, she was totally out of line by striking him, it was over the top, especially because the kid was probably more stunned and scared than anything. If that had happened to my kid, and he was missing teeth or had a broken nose as a result of the crash, I might have considered throwing a hit. But for something as simple as a minor collision, I'd be a little more concerned with making sure my kid wasn't just blindly running into s***.

The fact that it took her so long to get over there shows that she wasn't watching her kid closely enough- and when they are that small and lack any self-preservation instinct, you have to be within arms' reach of them or these things will happen. The skater wasn't at fault, she was- so like many parents, she projected her failure onto someone else. Way to fail, Mom.

WHoa... That mom has no right... THe kid ran into to skater..... What we don't see is once the camera is off the skater proceeds to beat the living heck out of the mom with his board.... I am just kidding..... I think that the mother was in thewrong none the less.

When it comes the the kid and the skater, of course neither are at fault here, that's why it's called an accident. But the punch was no accident, you can here the Mom off in the distant (at 12 seconds in) calling for her friend Tina or Rita, to "punch his face". She clearly had every intention of punching him, before he even started to explain himself. At least check on your kid's condition, before dealing with the skater. Idiocracy, here we come!

calm down, you wouldn't know in this case if your kid was hurt because she clearly takes no time to check on him before whaling on the guy. Saying "well this is a common phrase" as if it somehow defends her punching a dude is silly too. Should she be upset? Of course. But was it an accident? Absolutely. Does her punching him now solve anything? Nope. Also, why is it ok for her to hit him, and not expect any retaliation? Isn't that a bit of a double standard?

She's quite the role model. Violent, negligent, and taking no personal responsibility. This kid will be getting arrested before he hits sixteen. The skateboarder did do the right thing.

Great parenting, stupid. Now anytime someone bumps into him (whether it's his fault or not), he'll know it's okay to punch the guy or girl in the face. And if he can't beat them up then he knows his mom can. And why on Earth did you have a birthday party at a skate park for a 5 year old? Why wasn't nobody watching him and making sure he wasn't standing in the paths of skateboarders--it's a freaking skate park after all. What was he expecting to be there other than skate boarders? Barney and some angels running around? Big up's to the skateboarder who didn't fight back and backed away immediately when she shoved him. He ain't no wuss for not fighting back. There's a camera, she's a female, and it's just not worth it trying to deal with people as stupid as her. Btw, I'm a mother of two and I've seen other kids and adults accidentally push or shove my kids--keyword here is "accidentally." If I was to see anybody take advantage or hurt my children intentionally, my fists might fly but I need to first assess the situation and the person before I take any action. Your kids watch you to learn from you 24/7. Don't teach them how to handle conflicts in ways that might land them in jail in the future, moron.

"First of all, it's angry mother who clearly wasn't afraid to prove a point by throwing punches, ever heard of the phrase "don't get between a momma bear and her cub?" Talk about asking for a grizzly attack." Ever heard of come like a man get treated like a man? She's obviously used to bullying people around and not expecting retaliation. I don't believe in double standards. He had every right to defend himself, and believe it or not, those skinny skaters are actually pretty tough guys who are athletic and used to taking a lot of punishment. He showed a great a mount of maturity and restraint not to KO that idiot of a woman.

knock her out

Yes! Let's blame everyone except ur bad a** kid. God forbid she take the extra time to actually watch her child, that's everybody else's job. That bi**h should go to jail.

Overacting Mother!!!

No one seems to think that it takes TWO people to cause this accident... the boy was carelessly *running and the skateboarder didn't pay enough attention. Another point I'd like to point out is if the mom actually cared about her son she would of checked to see for herself if he was alright but instead she made the situation worse! PLUS, the skateboarder apologized and he still got pushed and decked in the face?? I'm sure it was traumatizing for the boy to get laid out in the concrete yet the outcome of the collision caused this mom to go to far. Even if the skateboarder was unapologetic, he still didn't deserve to be bullied like that. In my opinion, that woman needs to realize that demonstrating violence over an accident (or at anytime really) is not acceptable to display to young children or anyone for that matter.
