The parent behaved very nicely with just a warning .

My child won all were happy and from there on out that parent showed the utmost respect for us .
So, you had 3 bodyguard types threaten the parent and everything was ok for the match the following weekend.....

HOW DOES THAT HELP OUT ANOTHER PARENT OR CHILD WHO WILL FACE THIS PARENT WHO TALKS TRASH TO THE KIDS?

You just helped your kid out and no one else.

Honestly, you act like this great Christian here quoting the Bible and this story just seems selfish to me.....

Sorry, but this site is to help other parents and other juniors.

What could have been done differently?

How about recording at the moment with a pen and paper, taking out your phone and recording it, or writing an email to yourself
with THE ACTUAL LANGUAGE THAT ANOTHER PARENT USED TO TRASH TALK A CHILD.

Then, email it to your sectional office and your national office.

What happens. Maybe, at that moment, nothing.

But, you created a paper trail on this parent.

I have seen bans of 6 MONTHS, THAT'S RIGHT 6 MONTHS, on parents.
