If it were my child who was being cared for by this nanny, I would want to know. So here’s what happened. Some friends and I had a play date in Central Park at the Heckscher Playground at the end of July. There was a nanny there of Indian descent. Several kids, including my 19 month old, and my friends’ children, were playing together happily. Then the nanny and the beautiful little girl she looks after (in the photo) arrived with toys. As kids do, she took some of my son’s toys, he took hers, others took hers and his and all were okay with it. There was no fighting or arguing or any unhappiness amongst the children. Then the nanny slapped my son’s hand and began to yell at him. Admittedly, I got upset and told her not to touch or talk to my son. To me, yelling at my son is bad enough but touching him is a whole different ball game. When our friends got involved, it turned into a full-blown verbal fight with her calling a little girl “a little whore.” Other moms who I didn’t know also got involved. The nanny eventually left, screaming profanities at whomever would listen the entire time. When we walked around the park a little later, we could hear her yelling at other people (we weren’t sure why she was upset then). Other moms said they had not seen this nanny there before and haven’t seen her since. For the record, I never saw her hit this little girl. But when she was so busy screaming at everyone, she had her back turned on the little girl for several minutes, including while the little girl was playing in the water. Like I said, I would want to know if my child’s nanny was behaving in such a manner while on duty, or leaving my child unattended at any time.
