It was an honest mistake op. It's nice that you decided to take action instead of be a bystander! We need more people like you:)
Plus, if a school age kid was making such a fuss over having to go to school, having the police show up might get the kid a much needed reality check about when the drama is over the top. Or, if there is a real reason behind not wanting to go to school, like bullying for example, the police could get a social worker or school psychologist involved.
58 because, at first, it was just the dad, and then the mom came out. And, even if it's a couple, they could still attempt to kidnap a child and, if they're kidnapping a child, why wouldn't they lie about it and just say it's their kid? Good job on trying to take action instead of just doing nothing or ignoring it, OP.

Yeah how to be afraid of nothing and suspicious of everyone and how not to mind their own business ... Do you honestly think if a child felt fear and were being forcefully abducted by a stranger they'd be yelling their heads off? No they'd be scared and shocked and most likely to quietly and willingly out of fear... A kid will throw a raged of a fit usually with people they feel comfortable doing so with no at random stranger who might punish them for carrying on... All the answers to this applauding the op are stupid if it had been me who this broad called the cops on for dealing with my kid id have her ass charged with harassment so fast her nosy faced head would spin
Uhhh not necessarily #73. Have you never seen a kid acting out in a public place? They don't know those people and they are still freaking out. And most kids would scream and cry if they were being abducted. Kids these days have been taught to call out for help when something is wrong. I know I would scream as loud as I could if someone was trying to take me, even if I was scared of the person. I'd be more scared of what would happen to me if they managed to take me rather than what they would do to me if I was making a scene. Good on op for being concerned. Unless I heard the kid themself agree with the parents I would be suspicious
73- Do you have kids? I have custody of my little sister and have been raising her almost all of her life, so she is also my daughter. I would be glad someone called the police if they think my child is in danger. It's good to know there are people who care enough to attempt to protect her, even if they are wrong. I would much rather have someone call the police when they are wrong than not call when they are right.
How are they meant to verify they're the parents? It's just their word. It's not like the kid has photo ID or anything. Parents don't go around with their kids birth certificates and even if they did, the kid could always say their name was something else. I get where you're coming from, I just don't think you understand the logistics of it.
Hey guys OP here! I asked the little girl if that was her parents and she nodded but 911 told me they were still sending an officer to be 100% sure that everything was accurate. The parents completely understood and were totally fine because they were glad I cared and took action. :)
