Received Monday, August 18, 2008. - Perspective & Opinion
This article appeared in our local paper yesterday on the front page. I had heard about this story from other parents, and when I read this story, I realized that yet another provider was neglectful in her profession, which caused the death of an innocent baby. Upon reading the article, the provider was unlicensed, and didn't follow the mother's explicit instructions to have the baby lay on her back for naps. This provider didn't follow through on what she was told to do by the mother, and had this baby sleep in a broken crib. This incident makes parents scared, frightened, and concerned with finding childcare for their children, especially infants. Parents shouldn't have to go through that. I thought you might want to share this with your readers, and let those of us who take our jobs as nannies and childcare providers raise our standard for childcare even higher and provide the best possible care for children. Let those nannies and providers like this one and the ones we read about on ISYN take a lesson from those of us that are professional in how to properly care for children, or leave the profession since they don't love their work with children as much as we do!
Love, Miss Dee
