That is really tough - If it was bad physical stuff, yes I would say something either that or report them.1

That would depend on the severity of the situation. If the child was clearly acting out and their parent was lecturing or scolding them for that, then I wouldn't say anything. That is their business. However, if I saw them walking together and the parent started screaming at them for a silly reason, I might have to bite my tongue and observe the situation. If the parent shows no sign of softening anytime soon, or if they seem like they're about to harm the child, I will say something.
I prefer to observe situations before I react to them. To what extent are they bullying the child? Is it abuse? If it is a screaming child in a grocery store, I will ignore it. Aside from that, I'll probably interfere a tiny bit.1
