Your nanny has no business working with children. Your child is between 12-18 months (ed) at my best guess. The child needs to learn how to play. You cannot just plop the child in the sand and expect the child to know how to play. Your little girl was eating sand and throwing sand. The nanny who was reading a National Enquirer did not now or did not respond. When the child threw sand, I very nicely alerted the nanny that the little girl was throwing sand and she might want to be worried because the wind could blow it back in her eyes. The nanny wasn't impolite with me. She got up with an "oh boy, what now" sort of motion, which was almost humorous considering she assumed by plopping the little girl in the sand she was done. The nanny went and sat with her in the sand and I did see them playing together or feigning it. It was a good act for three minutes. I was minding my own business when I saw out of the corner of my eye the nanny tell the child not to throw sand. The nanny sounded aggravated and I notices she was rubbing HER eyes. Next thing I saw is the nanny tossing sand in the child's face and telling her that it would hurt if she got sand in her eyes.
