Parents Who Hate Their Children

This conversation happened about five feet away from me on Friday. I have translated it from the foreign for your horror:

(Woman lights cigarette about a foot from her daughter's four- to six-year old face.)

Man: You shouldn't smoke so near your children. It's bad for their health.
Woman: Oh, it's okay. She doesn't know the difference.

First, I was glad that a stranger would tell someone that she's killing her child. Second, I was horrified that that would be her response.
