I would like to report a bad nanny that I observed at the Liberty Science Center on Tuesday afternoon. She was caring, or rather failing to properly care for one, Caucasian, tow headed, blonde girl of approximately 3 years of age. The little girl was wearing pink and brown pants and a white hoodie sweater. The nanny was Hispanic, likely Domican, with wet look curl style hair, tight blue jeans and a red ribbed sweater. I would call the nanny's behavior indifferent and outright mean. The nanny had brought her to this great place, likely at the parent's bequest. The parent's had probably paid for the outing and the nanny wanted to do nothing but mope around and text. Several times the child (who was very petite for her age) asked to do this or that or for help and the nanny kept responding in the nastiest, most grumpy tone, "we are here to look. You look with your eyes, not your hands". This is a great place with hands on exhibits and interactive activities and I saw this poor little girl do NOTHING but watch other children having fun from a distance. It was pathetic.
