Ok ok, both are wrong, but people freaks out more when a kid punches his/her parents.
Same happens with a woman hitting a man, no one gives a fuck until the man gets tired and kicks her ass (well deserved btw).
Don't get me wrong, I wish violence didn't exist but it does, and for me hitting the shit out of someone once you're tired of them, it's fucking right.
No, no one hits me 😂 no, I don't hit people either.

I think it has a lot to do with culture. Here it's WAY worse hitting kids than kids hitting parents.
I think I heard spanking kids and such is more common in South America xD
If you do that, or anything else like that here and people find out, you'll be looked at like some kinda sadistic child abuser, which is a good thing.1

I don't necessarily agree that people will "freak out more". That's a matter of public consciousness, which changes from place to place, year to year, even day to day. Honestly, public consciousness could flip a complete 180º with just one court case published in the papers.
That said, it's usually takes more for a kid to lash out with violence against parents, just because there are more layers of order/authority to overcome, there.
Just like it's a "bigger deal" when a citizen shoots a cop than when a cop shoots a citizen. It's not MORALLY a bigger deal -- but it's PRACTICALLY a bigger deal. There are more barriers in the citizen's way, so the citizen has to be pushed much farther before something like that has to happen.
So, insofar as what you're seeing is real, that's what you are seeing. If a kid is hitting his/her parents, you are seeing a situation that is REALLY FAR GONE. Much more far gone, on average, than the other way around.
Both situations are fucked up, of course.
Let me add that I have no problem at all with a kid killing an abusive parent. Just straight killing that parent, dead. If I'm ever on a jury for that kind of case, I am ALWAYS going to acquit, even if the abuse is relatively "minor". (As if abuse can really be minor...)1
