In Grand Forks, Minnesota, a former day care owner (Marsha Brouillet) was sentenced for child abuse charges involving a head injury to a friend’s child under her care. The child required a two day hospital stay for injuries resulting in bleeding in the brain and seizures. The mother of the 4 month old child senses that something was wrong with her child and the day care center and sought medical attention for her child. Furthermore, she removed her child from the day care center. The day care owner later admitted to shaking the child without supporting his head. The parents are thankful that the injuries were not worse and they were understandably upset that the day care owner would act in such a reckless and callous manner.
Day care center owners and employees should not work in a day care center or around children if they cannot handle the cries or demands of children. Babies, infants, toddlers, and children will cry. They can also be quite demanding and unreasonable. This comes with the territory. A safe and loving haven should be provided in a day care center.
