Parenting failure

From the AJC today.

A 9 year old boy attacks several toddlers (ages 1 - 2) in a day care. He
  • Slaps a little girl
  • pushes her head down hard on a table
  • (standing) kicks a little girl in the back so she falls down
  • Punches another little girl
His aunt says
  • He is a normal child
  • They (the family) are embarrassed by his actions, but the daycare should be shut down
  • He is on medication
 The rampage is caught on tape and went on for 15 - 20 minutes. The daycare worker can be seen gazing out the window.

Why was a 9 year old with the babies? Why are the day care workers not taking care of the kids? Why is the family excusing this?

I saw this earlier in the week on AOL. I was outraged then, and now I am again. THAT is exactly the type of behavior I had to deal with every single day at the Hell-Hole. Times 20, at least. PLUS, their parents. Yeah, good times, good times...

Thanks for reminding that I made the right move by leaving. :)

You made the right choice.

That was so sad. Those poor children. That boy needs help...and he shouldn't be there alone with those tiny children! Shame on those workers.

OH MY WORD~ Those parents need to be punished... and that child needs discipline classes... immediately or it will definitely escalate
