So earlier this week I was informed that my daycare provider had a complaint filed against her. A parent that leaves their daughter in daycare from 6:45 am to 5:30 pm everyday noticed a bump on her childs forehead 5 hours after she picked her up from daycare. A 7 month old who has a quarter size mark on her forehead...and you don't notice it until 10:30 at night. In which at that time you rush her to the hospital and have pictures taken and claim that your daycare provider beat her.
I understand and respect the need to investigate every claim. Especially when it comes to a daycare provider in charge of several children. However, the woman didn't stop there. She called child protective services. Nicky has a child of her own. Without even talking to Nicky she went commando and pulled out all the stops to get her lisence taken away and effect the parenting of her own child. What REALLY pisses me off about the entire situation is that Child Protective Services tried to interview my 2 year old without my permission or my presence. WTF??? Nicky let her interview her daughter and the questions asked were not 'how does mommy interact with the other children?' they were 'do you ever see mommy hit the other babies?'!!!! Isn't that the power of suggestion? Then to try to interview MY CHILD with questions about child abuse. He is two..he knows that when the word no is used...it is negative..so he would probably say yes to everything in order to please. It was like this woman wanted to skip a step to make her day easier. Then when Nicky said she wasn't allowed to interview the other children w/o parental consent the woman suggested that Nicky not inform the parents.
You wait until I get in touch with that woman's supervisor!
