On Prospect Park West and Garfield Place at 11:30 today, Tuesday, 8/25. I was walking behind your nanny and her friend. You have a turquoise stroller and 2 adorable blond boys, one of whom was standing on the back of the stroller. Your younger one in the stroller was holding something in his right hand outside of the stroller. It was either a piece of an apple or a leaf. Your nanny SWATTED it out of his hand without saying a word and he started screaming. Her friend asked what happened, and she responded but I didn't hear what she said. At that point I walked past them and I told her that what she did was very mean, and that you don't just swat something out of a child's hand. She started yelling at me to mind my own business. She continued yelling while I was down at Union Street. When I doubled back (I was exercise walking) I reiterated that you don't treat people in your charge in such a mean way. BTW, your son was still crying.
