Mother Has Brilliant Response To Woman In Walmart Who Called Her 2-Year-Old Son ‘Repulsive’

What was supposed to be a regular trip to Walmart turned out to be an awful experience for one mother. The woman decided to post her story on Facebook where it went viral and got nearly 70K likes.

Everything started while Dallas Lynn and her two-year-old son Jameus were waiting at the check out. Jameus wanted to hug his mom so – like any mother – Lynn picked up her child for a cuddle, exposing his stomach. This was where things got messy.

Scroll down to read Lynn’s touching story below.

Kudos to the mom who didn’t make a scene but decided to educate the public

Her story reached thousands of people

But most importantly, it proves that Jameus couldn’t wish for a better, more loving mom

I am not sure whether such a social media story will do the trick; it merely reaches those who are interested anyway, and are not ignorant. What we rather need is moral courage: if anyone of us whitnesses a situation like described by this woman, we ought to intervene and loudly tell the unfriendly person "You are the only one with this opinion. If you do not like the sight, you are free to change line.".

it might not do the trick, but it is part of doing the trick.

'People at Walmart'.... We seen enough pictures to know that some customers have lost all grip on reality and no longer have a general idea about what is acceptable behaviour and what isn't.

So sorry. People can be so cruel. My middle son was diagnosed at age 3 with a brain tumor. He's endured 5 surgeries, including one 15 hour, marathon brain surgery, over 70 weeks of chemotherapy and countless scans and tests. I took him and my older son to a restaurant for Easter dinner. Given all we'd been going through, it was nice to do something not doctor related. My son was on powerful steroids. I've seen first hand how they alter personality, a common side effect. He was grumpy. He was crying and didn't want to sit at the table. Very unusual for him. Soon he stopped fussing and just wanted to lie down. He sat in his chair, leaned over and put his head in my lap. An elderly woman, appearing so sweet walked up to the table and told me I should "beat his ass." I was so mad but I'm certain she 'll think twice before doing this again. Morale of the story: Be kind, dont judge. You never know what someone else is going through.

Wow...this is actually worse than the story of the post. Inappropriate _and_ unwarranted advise. I guess in your situation it was hard to not have beaten *her* ass.
