I think what they are getting at is that maybe you misinterpretted what looked like a slap when the coach might have been trying to catch the gymnast or it possibly was a playful tap. Yes, there are times when what a parent sees from a distance is taken out of context. I (nor anyone else who has posted here, except the "moderate view" anonymous poster) do not this this is the case. I am pretty sure that if you had any doubt in your mind you would have expressed that here and the fact that other parents reacted the same exact way, to the point of pulling their daughters as well tells me you all did not misinterpret this.Why does the way my daughter was slapped matter? Why does it matter if she was falling or performing an exercise? Why does it matter is there were words exchanged?
