  • Report her to the state licensing board and find another child care provider. That is after I chew her out and give her a good piece of my mind. I will also let everyone I know be aware of what kind of provider she is.

  • I would tell any other parents that are taking their kids there the situation so they can find a new provider as well.

  • OMWord!!!!! I would report her. I would give her a piece of my mind. I would tell everyone I know not to use her. I'd probably sit outside her door and tell any other parents what they needed to know. And I would probably quit my job and not leave my child with anyone ever again.

  • I'd raise hell threaten to bring charges against her, and fire her sorry ass! If she ever used me for a job reference I'd give her prospective employers an earful!

  • i would see how she liked it ..put her in a carseat and let her sit in the bathroom in the dark with a damn music machine....unreal. but honestly there are sitters out there that do mistreat children of all ages. Make sure you get a background check done before letting anyone watch your kiddos.
