I just saw two nannies both of whom were neglecting their charges. This occurred 1/2 hour ago (approx. 1pm) at Harbor Island Park in Mamaroneck, NY, off of Boston Post Road. The first nanny was wearing brightly colored clothes. It was a matching outfit and she had an unusual hat on, small, perhaps cultural to Africa. She had gold earings and was about 5 foot 6, 150 lbs. The second nanny was wearing blue jeans, a long sleeve white shirt, white tennis shoes, she had a silver cuff bracelet on her arm, was about 5 foot 5 and 200 lbs. The first nanny was making her charge hold an umbrella over her to protect her from the sun. This was while she searched in her big bag for something. Her charge was a boy who was maybe three years old and was begging to swing. She told him a number of times no and that he needed to play with himself that this was her break and he needed to be a big boy. She wasn't that nice about it.
The second nanny had a little boy in a stroller. He was blonde, I would guess 18 months, with very fair skin, wearing a green block print polo and black pants. This nanny had a sack of what looked like the sort of bag one would obtain to handout candy at Halloween. It was a giant bag of mini snickers. To keep the boy stilled, she just kept opening mini snickers and handing them to him. She too, was eating them. Quite a bit. That's her perogative, but the kid clearly could have walked around the playground, been put in a swing, anything. But she wanted to sit there gabbing. Both of the nannies were AA. Both of the children were caucasian. These nannies were not interested in their charges or providing them any kind of care. A sad sighting.
