Do you have the type parents who feel they can put their hands on you regardless of your age?

I thought it was just a black thing but I now know friends of all ethnic backgrounds whose parents have the nerve as well. Even my friends from HS who range from 21-30 still have parents who will raise a hand to them, despite their grown age. I almost didn't buy my mom any gifts this Christmas. she's hardly one to lay hands but while shopping with her last week, she felt it was okay to do so. I bought my groceries as she said she’d pay for her personal nongrocery items separately. While at the cash register she kept calling my name asking for my card. I ignored her until she pestered me so. Then i finally responded “What? You said before we got up here that you’d pay for yours.” She was like “I don't know who she think she's what-ing right now?” Then she smacked me upside the back of the head in front of the whole store. It took everything in me not to swing back. But i spent the rest of the day cussing her out in my head 😂 She made it worse by constantly following me around for the next 5 mins, all on my shoulder like a bulldog saying “What you gonna do, you gonna hit me, huh huh?”. Then later that day proceeded to “Oooh i bet you’re texting all your friends talking bad about me because my ears are burning.” Then around the end of the day, she remembered I hadn't bought her Christmas gift yet and decided to give a half ass apology. Good Lord. Its really good i believe in respecting my mom cause the devil on my shoulder wanted me to smack that hoe down and give her coal for Christmas. #ToxicParents

Thanks everyone for being honest. This is a sad post and I see that others have been hit as well. After the age of 18, its totally unacceptable in my opinion. I don't know whats come over our parents. A lot of them are passing down trauma their parents brought onto them. Others are just manipulative/bullies/drunks. I do believe in honoring thy parents, but i also dont blame those for hitting back after a certain age. Physical abuse from some parents has gotten outta hand
