I am not sure exactly where this post is going to end up. This will definitely be a stream of consciousness type post and may go in many directions. The idea of daycare has always been a scary thought to me.
There has been an incident at a daycare not far from where I live. I know there is a large need for daycare for many people. I also know that there are many very good ones around.
But, I will never put Allie in daycare. You absolutely can never tell if someone working at a daycare will have a really bad day and snap on your child.
Seeing this video was incredibly disturbing. She actually looks up at the camera and then acts as if she is helping the child down the stairs.
There were many comments of people saying, “If that were my child that woman would be dead”. I can’t help but feel alarmed by that. How far will we go to assert our strength? Yes, it is an atrocity what this woman did. But, threatening to kill her?
I would definitely take action and press charges against her. On the other hand, setting an example for my child is part of my job as a parent. I must take the high road and not inflict any more violence or hate.
That being said, my daughter will know that, if anyone harms her in any way, she will be able to tell me and I (and her daddy) will protect her AT ALL COSTS.
Allie is my #1 priority. No matter what, my job is to protect her from harm and teach her to be strong and kind.
I need to stop here because I am getting emotional.
Tell me something your child did today that made you smile? What is something that makes all the hard times worth it?
I hope everyone is having a great day!!
