My thoughts are that the fight was better than many pro wrestling matches that I've watched.

I don't see cheering your kid as child abuse, although most parents will and should stop kids from fighting when they see it. Whether or not it is a legal issue might depend upon how the mother was involved, or if she forced the girl to fight. It sounds like she encouraged it. I don't see it as child abuse because the mother didn't do anything to harm the child. However, given today's wimpy social norms, it was probably poor judgment.

Some fighting is a normal part of growing up. I grew up in Chicago, where if you did not learn how to fight, you were eaten by the wolves. When I grew up, parents usually told you how stupid it was to fight, but then encouraged you to learn how to fight to defend yourself or a family member. Some fights are justified. A lot depends upon the social structure of your neighborhood. In tough neighborhoods, girls fought almost as much as the boys.

Given the number of cars and people in the field, it looks like this was a pre-arranged fight. It was probably going to happen whether the mother was there or not.

If it doesnt go too far its not child abuse, but then the problem is defining too far
