I saw some disturbing behavior from a nanny this afternoon (Friday, August 5th) at 4:00 pm at the water park on Pier 25 in Tribeca. I didn't see what transpired up to the point I saw her interacting with the girl (4-5 with brown shoulder-length hair, maybe a lavender shirt, but not positive), but this young white nanny (who looked early 20s) with braces (which I think were on the inside of her teeth), light blue t-shirt, black shorts, dark blonde hair in a braid and large sunglasses was *very* rough with her. I first noticed her because she was shouting at the girl and then proceeded to shove her hard on the chest into a black Maclaren stroller. The girl was crying and I couldn't help myself and said, "I think that kind of physicality is really unnecessary" (or something) to which she replied, "She keeps running away from me!"
I don't know what had happened before with the girl, but her physical aggression was very upsetting and wrong. She left the park and I could hear her shouting "I don't care!" at the girl, who was sobbing at that point. Let's just say if that were my kid, I'd want to know.
