Building Blocks - B - Day Care CenterIn New Mexico and other States, children are supervised in day care centers by child care providers who in most facilities provide a safe and loving environment for the children. Unfortunately, there are child care providers out there who simply lack the patience, training, maturity, and proper attitude to serve as child care providers.  Some of these child care providers respond to a child that is crying or otherwise not following instructions by assaulting, dragging, striking, or otherwise abusing the child in the very setting that should be a safe haven for the child.

Bent admitted to Good Morning America that he did lay next to one of the naked teenagers and put his hand on her chest (sternum).

Like anything else, tradition is no excuse whatsoever for abusing another person. This especially applies to children.
