Received November 12, 2008.
I was walking with my son behind a Nanny and 2 young girls, approximately 7 and 9 years of age. The older of the two girls, with dark blonde hair slightly past her shoulders, had a hardcover eyeglass case and was snapping it open and shut, making a loud clapping noise. The Nanny said "Quit it!" and smacked her on the back of the head. I was about 5-6 feet behind them, and I heard the swat. The little girl said "Ouch!" and grabbed the back of her head.
The Nanny was about 5'10, slightly overweight, with dark hair up in a banana clip. She was wearing faded blue jeans and a multi-colored grey sweater with horizontal stripes.
I see Nannies with their charges almost every day, and it's usually a very pleasant scene. This was the first one I ever felt needed to be reported. I was shocked by her behavior, and I hope the little girl's Parents see this.
