nanny sighting logo Where:Central Park, playground at 66th Street and Fifth Ave, NYC

When: Monday, May 11, 2009

Nanny: Asian Descent, short hair, slightly masculine, bluetooth device in ear.

Child: Andrew, caucasian boy,light brown(?) hair, approximately 4-6 years old, wearing grey bike helmet.

Incident: Andrew was playing on the slide in the sandbox area, alone for several minutes while nanny was no where in sight. He was clearly bored, jumping all over slide and eventually fell very dangerously off the top of the slide. His nanny eventually came over from the gazebo area 40 feet away, and after gathering what happened yelled horribly at him (!).

He then tried to engage my 19 month old daughter and play ball with her. When he accidentally caused her to fall (she did not cry and was really fine) his nanny rush over and grabbed him very forcefully, shouting, "No Andrew! Don't push!!!! Say sorry Andrew!!! She was so aggressive and he was clearly upset and scared of her.

Sad. I feel sorry for this child and the childs' parents. I hope they see this. Nannies should love and care for children.
