McKinnon Park in Salinas, CA

Received Wednesday, February 7, 2007
Tall, thin nanny, wearing a blue denim jacket over a hooded sweatshirt, pins on the deinim hacket, jet black hair with reddish tips, ethnicity unknown, attractive & carrying a Purple "Coffee House" Cup.
Boy with military haircut, 5-6, average height for age, brown eyes, caucasian with tan skin, wearing tan cord style jeans, white shirt.
What happens? On Feb, 6 at about 3pm, I see a nanny and child at McKinnon Park in Salinas, Ca. Child wanted to leave. Nanny was drinking coffee and reading a Jane Magazine. Child was pestering nanny. Flipping magazine pages. Nanny said "we just got here". Child would not run off to play. Kept poking at nanny's magazine. Nanny kept warning him. Then she held her coffee above his hand and said "I will". Child did not stop playing with magazine. Next I hear "Owww". I looked sharply at the nanny and she said to the kid, "sorry, sorry. i was just playing". But I think she meant too! She just wasn't prepared to realize I was taking it all in. As it ended, nanny gave in and left with the child like he wanted. Obviously out of guilt for having scalded him. Oh man.

Wait!
Are you serious?
That's ashame.
Really ashame.
You really gave a great desciption that the parents of this child will likely appreciate.
But, juding by the "brattability" of the boy, (if this bothered him) he will be very capable of telling the story. And his parents probably already know.
Does it get worse than this?

What the heck

That's awful! There is no reason someone should spill hot coffee on a child (or anyone for that matter) If she were my nanny I'd fire her right away.

i don't think it's fair to say she spilled it deliberately. the person who posted this is obviously not 100% sure and this is a serious allegation

Are you kidding me?! Do you not have a cell phone? Do you not have a voice? Not to put the blame on you, but there are times when an inaction is as revolting as the action witnessed. This is one of those times. How could you have not said anything? That poor defensless little boy had to go home, alone, with that woman. Who knows what happened there. Call the police, let them know what you saw. Post on other websites. The parents NEED to know what happened to their son. This is one of the few posts of actual child abuse I have ever read on this site.

re: "i don't think it's fair to say she spilled it deliberately".
Well she raised the cup of hot coffee and threatened the child. So she is guilty of something. What if she had brought out a loaded gun and just used it to scare the child and it accidentally went off?

Two posters here show their ignorance in dismissing this so lightly. Like Michael Jackson dangling his baby over a balcony, he didn't PLAN to drop that baby, but what if he had? You don't take chances with children that put them in harm's way. Get it now?

Oh man!

That is so shocking. I agree that the poster should have called the authorities.

I agree the nanny sounds horrible, but it is highly unlikely that she "scalded" him. Coffee to go gets cold pretty quickly, at best it was probably luke warm. Even so, her behavior is inexcusable.

I think you all need to get a hobby or lives and stop this crazy elaboration on a nannysight!!

jj said...

Me thinks not.

Go surf a phonics board.

the boy was obviously a brat. like #1 said, if she had done anything, he would definitely tell his parents!

I go to starbicks all the time and leave with a coffee cup,filled with cold cappucino. How do you know what this women was drinking? Give me a break..this post is silly!! I tease my son all the time in this manner! You people must have perfectly boring lives!!!!

zelda said...

idiot-
a frappucino is not packaged the same as a hot beverage. they have different lids and cups. You sound like a complete and total moron and may I add- not unlike the kind of mother that would dump scalding milk on her child for sport!

She was drinking coffee as the OP stated!!

1) anyone can ACT educated.
(I prefer to BE educated)
2) Zelda with a small Z? Blogger

When did people start using a foreign language on here?

What, goosfraba? It's from the movie Anger Management. It's a calming word. Loved it when Adam Sandler had to sing "I Feel Pretty" in the middle of the 59th St Bridge.

oh, didn't see that movie. Heard it was a stinker.

It had its moments; you really had to suspend your disbelief and enjoy. John Turturro - love him!

Are you serious?! Please tell me you did something???? Speaking as a nanny, that was absolutely despicable behavior. Just as a loving, breathing human being I would have gone up to any person i.e. mother, father, sister, brother, nanny, etc. who I had watched physically abuse their child/charge in front of me. I would feel just as responsible as the person who poured a scalding coffee on a defenseless child’s head for just watching and not doing anything to reprimand that person.

God Damn, I would have went over to the nanny and child, calmed the scalded kid, restrain the nanny and called po-po.
not being a RAT, and generally not using the police (at least in my area)She should have been arrested just the same.
I can see why people use hidden video cameras on their child workers.
