Did a Missouri daycare worker take discipline too far? The parents of a 4-year-old girl think so, and want the daycare shut down after an employee allegedly strapped the child to a chair with duct tape and took a picture.
KFVS reports that the Missouri Department of Children and Family Services found the photo of the girl, taken at the Little Learners of Florissant in Florrisant, Missouri, and sent it to her parents, Elysha Brooks and Christian Evans.
Brooks, infuriated, shared the photo on her Facebook page. Apparently, the incident occurred in March but the daycare center never informed the parents.
“One of her teachers DuctTaped her to a Chair and posted her on SC (Snapchat). Received a call from a hotline and they sent me this pic of my baby. This incident supposedly happened in March and the daycare still fail to inform us of the situation. Also failed to document a incident of a rock being lodged in my baby ear that almost damaged her eardrum….”
Brooks told KFVS that no matter how many times she looks at her little girl strapped onto the chair, it still upsets her. She not only wants the daycare shut down, but she wants the employee who strapped her child down fired and in jail.
“I won’t be happy until that daycare is shut down, for one, and whoever did this to my child, whoever it is, either – it’s not an either – she needs to be in jail.”
So far, the daycare hasn’t responded to requests when asked about the incident. It’s unclear if the employee who taped the little girl to the chair is still working at the daycare center.
“Seeing your child duck taped to a chair, seeing the anxiety, seeing how scared your kid is, knowing for one that you’re not there to protect them and knowing for two that you have people around that would stoop to that level to hurt your child puts you in a crazy mind state,” Evans told KFVS.
