It's one of the things that keeps parents of young children up at night, wondering, “How do I know my child is safe when I drop them off at the daycare every day?”
A woman in Mississippi got a text last week that stopped her heart. She was informed Thursday evening that her 18-month-old son had been attacked and left crying and covered in blood with scratches all over his face. Police say he looked like he had been mauled by an animal.
The boy’s father posted these photos on his Facebook page. It turns out the child was allegedly attacked by a 4-year-old when the childcare provider left the room. No charges have been filed against the daycare owner, but police are investigating. The boy’s father says he wants the daycare shut down and he plans to file a lawsuit.
