The title says all. Is there some bad effects of this? Kid was pushing air's screen pointing out something, with a 'distorion' effect, when you push screen with some force. I don't see anything bad, but I want to know if this bad for screen.

Yes, it is bad for the screen if you do this a lot, but once (as long as it didn't cause any noticeable permanent damage) is fine. Just don't do it a lot.

just get a screen protector for the screen. in my schools, when i show some work or illustration to my classmates or instructors, they have a habit of pointing their pencils and pens and even finger nails to my screen. its very disturbing but i don't want say anything to distract them from the discussion. i have many occasions where various classmate and instructors point their sharp tipped pencils at my screen. so i just put on a screen protector for piece of mind sake. :D

I think the OP's kid was pressing the screen, hard enough to make that distortion effect - A screen protector wouldn't do anything for that, only for scratches :)
