Received Monday, October 26, 2009
Nanny: Caribbean, about 5 feet tall, round, wearing a long black dress and a beige-ish jacket.
Child: cute little girl, maybe 4 or 5, I think she had dirty blondish hair, she was wearing a skirt and her white tights were ripped, named Chloe
Location: outside of a school on Columbus and 83rd-ish
When: Friday afternoon around 3ish
Incident: I saw the nanny shove the child forward as they were crossing the street. It seemed like the little girl was upset over something (maybe she fell?) She was moping and looking down. When I got closer to them, I heard the nanny yell at her, "Stop complaining Chloe!" The nanny noticed me looking at her, and then put her arm around her as they crossed the next street. I know this isn't outright abuse or anything, but isn't the way to cross the street with a child by holding her hand and not pushing her? Especially since this was right outside the school, in front of other parents, kids and nannies. What does she do to the child when they are alone?
