Saturday

Diablo Vista Park in Danville, California

Received Saturday, May 12, 2007
I noticed your nanny "Fay" or "Faith" showing lack of patience with your boy of about 4. Your nanny was reading People magazine. Your little boy did not come when she called him. Nanny just yelled louder. We look at her as if to say, "get up and deal with it". After waking up a baby with her big mouth, the boy finally came to her side. This is after he called out to her in equally loud voice, "what Fay/Faith?", "What?" What did she tell him? She told him that he had 5 more minutes. The boy ran off after that. The nanny exclaimed, "mother F---er" and hoisted herself off the bench. She then walked at fast rate chasing him around. Next time I saw her I was throwing garbage and she was by the volleyball courts with the boy. She was kneeling down with an angry look on her face saying something with rage on her face. I could not hear it so I don't want to guess what it was. The boy was throwing sand from one of his hands to the other. Sifting. Whether intentional or not, some must have hit nanny in the face because she reached down grabbed a handful and hurled it right in his face. At that point he started crying about his eyes. Nanny looked around to see if anyone was looking and then hugged the boy. Then she started to dab at his eyes while patting his back. Her tone changed very much. I think she was going to play it off as an accident. What it was seems to be another impatient nanny unable to deal with a child. Yes, children misbehave. What is this nanny teaching that boy?
The nanny was Anglo, brown shoulder length hair, a clip keeping some of it up, khaki capris with a cuff and a white t-shirt. The boy was also Anglo; had reddish, thick hair, blue and white striped shirt and cream colored khakis. The nanny and boy left from the volleyball court and never walked past me again. I am quite sure nanny knows she did wrong.

What a great idea....as a British baby nurse who has worked here for many years, I have been appalled by some of the things I've seen in the parks here.....EVERYONE should be looking at this site........

Parents. Even if you think you have a good nanny, set up a spy. Have someone you know, who the nanny doesn't, go play at the same park with their child. Have them observe your nanny, then strike up a conversation with her. You may learn a lot about how your nanny really is. I did this. My nanny, I found out, is priceless. She scored an A++++++

she should have been confronted. Letting her know she was seen abusing this child may have given her a warning. She is not nanny material. Find her. FIRE HER.

I would have thrown something at her head. Yes, it sucks that the child threw sand in her direction but her response to me suggests she would just easily stab him if he accidentally scraped her with his fingernail.

Frightening! More reports. More details. Let's help these parents by shining a light on the phonies that made it through the interview process.

Poor child, horrible disgusting excuse for a nanny.

Another mentally ill nanny on the loose. Where do they all come from? Is there a school for psycho nannies run by satan worshippers intent on screwing up our youth beyond repair?

I shop at Kohls. I do not believe that makes me psycho or a Satanist.

I like Kohls too, Kathryn. Aren't those sale and clearance prices to die for? I haven't been in the store when Alec Baldwin is teaching his new recruits, however!

Alec Baldwin is a legend. A lovely, earnest legend with a super sense of humor and supple, coral member. I highly doubt he has ever seen the inside of Kohls. But you go ahead.
