Every day parents drop their children off at daycare. They hope and pray their child has a good day, eats his lunch and snacks, doesn’t cry too much and plays with friends. They expect their licensed daycare program will offer a safe and secure haven while they’re at work.
It’s every parent’s nightmare to imagine their child is neither being loved nor safe while in someone else’s care. To hear that some workers at a daycare program are mistreating children is terrible. To learn that these workers are putting the little children into a fight club setting, forcing them to beat and fight with other little ones is worse than a nightmare.
But that’s the scenario discovered at a Delaware program. A policeman working on a separate case came across video of children in just such an unimaginable position. Children were taped fighting and if they cried or left the ‘fight’ they were put back in the situation.
A truly horrific scene and if found guilty these day care workers should be punished to the fullest extent of the law.
