There are THOUSANDS of cases of CHILD ABUSE and NEGLECT by daycare workers across the country. Additionally, many children have been killed or have died while in daycare. Don't let your child become the next victim. Here are 3 signs daycare workers might be abusing or neglecting your child.
1. Your child is suddenly BEHAVING strangely.
Not all abuse is physical, so whether its extreme mood swings, sudden withdrawal and shyness, an unusual interest in sexual matters, reoccurring nightmares, or reverting to outgrown, infantile behavior, your child's sudden change in behavior is often a major sign that something is wrong. Children don't know how to mentally process abuse and neglect, so their behavior often becomes strange and erratic when they're dealing with it. You know your child, so if you suspect something is wrong, don't hesitate to call the Law Office of Christian Davila at 956-516-9044 or email at email@example.com immediately. Your child's well-being is always a priority, so even if it's just a hunch, give us a call and get to the bottom of it.
2. Your child has PHYSICAL injuries, soreness, or infections.
The most obvious signs of abuse and neglect are the PHYSICAL signs--bruises, welts, lumps, cuts, scrapes, burns, and other injuries. Some signs are not so obvious, though--rashes, infections (especially urinary tract infections), muscle soreness, soreness in the genital area, inexplicable vomiting, lethargy, glassy eyes, frequent crying for no reason, and other such ailments are also major warning signs. Don't ignore these things. Ask the daycare workers what happened to your child. You have the right to know why your child is hurt. If you don't believe them or suspect something is wrong, call the Law Office of Christian Davila immediately at 956-516-9044.
3. Your child is AFRAID of the daycare, the daycare workers, and doesn't want to go.
There's a difference between children who don't want to be separate from you and children who don't want to be left with THEM--the daycare workers. So, pay attention to how your children react when you're dropping them off at the daycare or when they are approached by the daycare workers; FEAR of the daycare or the daycare workers is a dead giveaway that they might be abusing or neglecting your child. Also, pay attention to how they act when you pick them up from daycare. If your child is always unusually hungry or thirsty, or if the child's diaper is always soiled or wet, it may be a sign that they're being neglected.
