You’re supposed to tuck a child into bed, not TAPE them into bed.
Someone should really explain that concept to a Texas day care center that is now under investigation for using DUCT TAPE to secure restless kids to their sleeping mats during nap time!
The picture above was taken by an employee and sent to parents who had children enrolled at the day care center! That staffer then quit her job.
But with the leaked photo evidence out there, families wanted an explanation!
One mother says she got a call from Pam Decker, who works at the day care, and took responsibility for the incident.
She allegedly came clean and admitted to taping down two children who refused to stay on their mats during nap time!
Lorrie Almquist’s three-year-old son was one of the victims. She expressed just how angry she was after hearing what her little boy went through!
"I felt violated and I was irate. I couldn’t find any words to say to her. I was so hurt and saddened to think that my child had to go through that.”
Apparently Almquist’s son had been bold for several weeks during nap time, with the center even requesting Lorrie buy a weighted blanket to keep her kid in place!
But this is going WAY too far!
Ms. Almquist and another parent have reported this awful incident to the local police department and have contacted Child Protective Services.
They of course have also removed the kids from the day care.
Hopefully they can find a center that promises to NOT tape children down at nap time!
Is that so much to ask???
