younglobo saidTold one parent I had warned , my daughter what to do and they looked at me like i lost my mind
That parent had a blank expression on his face.  You interpreted it one way, but may I suggest another reason for that blank look?

It's possible he was just pausing to consider what you'd just said.  Sort of like shifting into neutral.

So his look may not have been hostile, just pensive.  Of course I don't know what he then said to you.  Maybe he said "Thanks, you've just given me an idea."  Or maybe not.  Either way, you can be sure that he was listening to you.
