Washing machine video

I can’t stand to watch the viral Internet video of someone putting a toddler into a washing machine. Shiver.

But I’ve read about the incident, and what a mess. At first, it was thought that the surveillance video that caught it happening showed the boy’s parents doing this at a laundromat. Now, the boy’s mother has come forward, saying he was in the “care” of a babysitter, and she had no idea this had happened until she saw the video on TV.

OMG.

Just saw she appeared on TV and said she plans to press charges.

Do you folks have any tips to share for parents, as far as what to watch for in good, quality childcare?

    The local Child Care Resource & Referral has Parent Specialists on staff that can provide information about looking for and choosing quality child care. Keep in mind there is a difference between a babysitter and a child care provider.
