Daycare Taunts Toddler Saying He Has ‘No Balls,’ Verbally Abuses 3 Year-Old Boy [VIDEO]
A Connecticut woman was outraged when she received a video that had been circling around her community showing her 3 year-old son being taunted by his daycare babysitter after being put in time-out, according to The Huffington Post.
Mother Tyesha Reese says she received the video of daycare worker Lindsay Cavallaro teasing her toddler while she filmed it on her cellphone.
“Do it. Go ahead. No balls. Oh you’re a tough guy. Hey boss, show me your nine,” Cavallaro could be heard saying when the young boy, Michael, said he was going to hit her.
“News flash sweetheart I don’t really like you either. Because you throw toys. I don’t like you,” she continues.
Michael was in “timeout” after he was seen throwing toys at another child, according to MSN.
After Cavallaro finished filming the child, she apparently thought that it would be a good idea to forward the video on. It wasn’t until someone recognized the child in the video and brought it to the mother’s attention that she realized what her son was being subjected to.
“It got into someone’s hands who actually saw the video and was like, wait a minute, I recognize whose son this is and that’s when they forwarded it to me and said ‘I need you to see this,’” Reese said.
“And when I saw my son’s face it was just unbelievable, you know.”
Reese went on to tell News 8 that ”it hurt because he was defenseless,” she said. “He was sitting in a chair and as a child he was trying to defend himself.”
The mother has pulled her son out of the daycare and Cavallaro has been placed on paid leave while the situation is investigated.
What do you think about Cavallaro’s comments to the young boy? What would you do if you were the toddler’s parent?
