A mom in the US has been left absolutely furious after staff at her son’s daycare center wrote a message on his stomach rather than tell her.
The child’s ‘furious’ mother, from Sanibel Island, Florida, took to Facebook on Monday to condemn the daycare center.
She explained that teachers at the Children’s Education Center of the Islands always leave a daily report in children’s lunchboxes.
However with the stresses of parenthood, the 23-year-old single mum-of-two forgot to check the previous day’s card and the following day her son had a message scrawled across his belly in marker pen.
The mom was absolutely livid with the daycare center, but first asked friends if she was overreacting. She certainly wasn’t.
Then she took to Facebook to share her story – and the rest is history.
The message written on her son’s chest read:
Mom I’m out of diapers pls read my report.
Cindy Carter DeCosta, executive director of Children’s Education Center of the Islands, said the teacher who was responsible had been fired.
We are aware of the incident at the school, and we are terribly sorry for the distress it has caused the family involved as well as all of our families. It was a breach of our professional ethics on the part of the teacher.
The school has taken immediate action to remove the teacher from the school. We are reviewing protocols already in place to ensure that nothing like this occurs again.
Why would you ever think this was a good idea?
