A Chinese mother was brutally attacked by her own son as she tried to stop him from playing on his mobile phone.
The 10-year-old boy, from Guangzhou, southern China's Guangdong Province, repeatedly kicked his mother in the torso when he was told to get off his phone, reported People's Daily Online.
The boy's grandmother, who was with the pair at the time, tried to stop the child from assaulting his mother, but to no avail.

Holy cr**, if any of my kids tried that on me they'd be picking up their teeth afterwards.

If I was the mum I would have have smacked him down. Dodging it only encourages the child to act more violently.

Chinese Mums here as bad. They leave most of the money to the boys. The Men are usually hopeless when they get older but fortunately fit them they marry a Chinese wife slash maid.

I wasn't allowed to even have a phone until I had some sort of job, now 10 year olds have phones ha. That boy needs to learn some respect!

I had to ask permission from the parents to make a phone call (from a real phone) until I was about 17. Not to mention a bag of other restrictions placed upon that that many youngsters today would be seeking assistance from the various Govt social welfare authorities complaining a whole swag of excessive maltreatments
