Alderman and crime

If a daycare worker beats a child with a wooden paddle, this is a CRIME. If crime is on the rise in the 18th ward, why did my Alderman tell the media that he doesn't want the daycare closed. This is NOT political people, this is a criminal act against children who are scared and voiceless. Did anyone read the 100 plus DCSF violations? Are we patiently waiting on someone to die at the daycare? This is heartbreaking and sad.

    Others came forward after the story aired, but one parent in particular stated that she was afraid of the process, and was also promised that it wouldn't happen again, but unfortunately it did less than a year later. A few fathers specifically said that they would have taken a different route, but we stand by the route that we've chosen to take. We thought out the process, and didn't allow our emotions to cloud the facts and take away from the abuse. Others seem to disagree, and talk a lot of craps about what they would have done. We're following the process and facing a lot of red tape, but we're in it for the long haul.

    Let's be clear, there are a lot of facts that I can't disclose. Please understand that we are going through the process as requested. We are only bringing awareness to this situation, no different from the other posting on this website. We're not discouraged by the comments or the support for the day care. If people want to continue to take their kids to God's Little Helper, that's his/her choice. At the end of the day, we wish that we would have had knowledge of prior cases. We just can't sacrifice any of our family members. One parent by the name Maria said that it's convenient, but she has pictures in her cell phone where her child was beaten with a wooden paddle. My heart goes out to her, but it's her decision.

Mom Fights To Shut Down Ashburn Day Care After Finding Bruises On Her Son

Howlett and other parents say that’s not enough. They want the former employee who allegedly spanked Nicholas to face criminal charges, and they want to revoke the license of the day care center, located at 3734 W. 79th St.

    God's Little Children Day Care is being investigated by DCSF for beating 5 year kids with wooden paddles. The owner Giovanni Mack made several phones calls to Carrie demanding that she call off the investigation. She never apologized or expressed any empathy in regards to the bruises on Nicholas's arm, leg or behind. The lengthy process is unfair to the victim, as well as to other parents who are not aware that there children are being taken in the bathroom and beaten. No arrest as of yet and the facility is still operating as normal. THIS FACILITY MUST BE CLOSED TO PROTECT OUR CHILDREN.
