I'm very sorry to hear this - what a thing for kids to have to witness!

I think I agree with the other posters who are urging you to pursue this matter. At the very least, you will be demonstrating to your children that you believe violence is unacceptable and that you take it very seriously. Mom will probably try to minimize the incident, if she ever talks to the kids about it, so you are the only one who can show them by example the this is not a minor thing at all. And Janibel''s point about escalation is very true.

Of course, you will have to weigh the cost of pursuing this legally, and what it means for you and the kids, so no one can tell you what is absolutely the right thing to do in this situation.
