I saw a very impatient nanny dealing with a small child at Calevera Hills Community Park on Saturday, April 7 at about 11 Am in the morning. The child was a little girl between 24-36 months with a dark brown,short hairstyle. The girl had dark eyes, long lashes and light skin. She was wearing a yellow windbreaker with two blue stripes on the sleeves. She was on the merry go round with a two other children. One of the children got off and then the male ( 5'9-5'11, short shaved style hair, with Boston B baseball cap and nice build) asked a little girl who I think was his daughter if she wanted to 'go fast'. That little girl affirmed that she indeed did and he started spinning both girls around. The nanny's little girl then asked for it to stop so she could get off. The male stopped the merry go round and she got off but fell and conked her head. The male bent down and asked the girl if she was okay, he apologized. The nanny stormed over and said "You need to get tougher, you are so weak". With this the little girl burst in to tears as the nanny took her away from the play area all together. I heard the nanny say to the child, "stop your crying or I'll give you something to cry about". The nanny was about 30-35, overweight with acne scars. She had medium length black hair and appeared to be Hispanic. I honestly think this nanny treated the little girl so badly because she was crushing the young dad. The nanny acted like she was embarrassed by the little girl's very normal behavior. Honestly, what kind of person is impressed by another person mistreating a child???
No one I know.
