  • Sue the bastards. If they did this to your child best believe their doing it to other children. Report the bruise and take pictures. Make sure your child tell the officer what happened.

  • Was it a licensed home day care? If so that needs to be reported! There are stanards that have to be upheld and that place was not doing that!!!

  • Do not take your children back there. If it's too late to document the abuse and neglect photographically, you can still make a sworn statement. I agree with Bugzmomma on letting your child tell what happened, although some states won't consider the testimony viable (sadly). If you owe the daycare, I wouldn't pay them either. I had an in-home provider leave my older DD in the front yard all day a couple of summers ago with the other children, no diaper changes and no indoor play. DD has pale white skin and no sun block was applied. When I picked her up her diaper was so full of both types of ick that it was sagging down to her knees and she had a severe rash all over her genitals and inner thighs. She was horribly sunburned and covered in dirt. I never took her back, never paid the lady for the week of "service." It turned out though, that her "certification" wasn't valid and it was my mistake for not checking more into cont.

  • Sounds like it's time for a new daycare and I might even report them,

  • I'm not surprised... I've worked in several different child care centers and its almost always the same story. Nobody really knows whats going on. Its all about making things LOOK good so they can make money. (I can't speak for ALL day care centers... but definitely several I worked at. Plus I recently tried to apply for a job at a newer center, and had to go spend an hour observing, and it was the same thing. I turned down the job because I didn't want to be part of something like that again!)
