Huh? This post really confuses me.

I flat out looked at my daughter and told her that she had moments to beat her regardless. It put it on my daughter to improve, not blame the circumstances around her losing. Maybe that's the wrong attitude, but I want her to learn from losing.

Once my kid settled down it gave us an excellent opportunity to discuss dealing with crap like this. The rules explicitly say parents must not interact with the kids and stay at least 50 yards away. Exceptions are safety related, e.g., nagging your kid to drink their fluids/eat. So the I told my kid if she gets another parent like this you pull out your range finder and very obviously use it to check to see how far away they are. You keep telling them to move away until they are at least 50 yards away. And of course if the parent does not comply you get the rules official. And for scoring you nicely but firmly make sure you and your marker are in agreement with your score and you and the kid you are marking are in agreement with their score. It was a good lesson for her to hold her ground in this area. Fortunately as mentioned she has rarely had to deal with blatant cheating and the odd time a correction was required it usually was an honest counting mistake.
