Nanny-Hispanic, older, wearing a scarf on her head, tan slacks, nursing style shoes, carrying a large canvas tote with knitting equipment.
Her charge-a boy of about 3, blondish straight hair, freckles, wearing a blue and red rugby style shirt and blue jeans.
The problem- the child was out of control and disruptive to several other children including my own. I had to track down who he was with because it was not immediately apparent. Nanny was in another area sitting and knitting. The child hit my child in the head after pretending to cock a gun, the child also made a shotgun sound and said, 'you're dead in the head'. I said to him, "this is not appropriate, who are you here with". He took me to his nanny. I told her about his behavior. At first she looked bored to be bothered, than she grabbed him by the earlobe and brought his face very close to hers and said some very harsh things to him in a whisper. After she let go of his ear, she turned him around roughly and pushed him, pushed him hard so he had to catch his step. His behavior changed after that, but I think his behavior would have been better from the get go if he had some intermittent supervision from lazy knitting nanny.
