IWA for Sunday 041209

One of those things that make you go WHY?

Hey folks,

WHY? Why was this allowed to happen. Truthfully, I'm not sure who the real Idiot is here. Oh, I know who I'm giving the IWA to, but really, I need a case of them for this one.

OK. For you Parents out there. Myself and Laura tried the Day Care thing when Joshua was first born. We have lives you know. We both work and both need time to ourselves. After all, it is normal to put your kid in Day Care. Right? {Sorry Dr. Laura. There really is a point to this}

So other than the cost, which can be pretty pricey depending on where you drop your kidlet, there is also this annoying little fact that you are giving the most PRESIOUS gift you will EVER receive in your life, to a perfect stranger.

This really did not last long. Laura changed to work over night, and I worked during the day. This way Josh always has Mommy or Daddy. Now this was before I really started to get to know Dr. Laura, I just somehow knew that this was not a good thing. Day Care is NOT a necessity now matter what you may have heard. You, even single parents, can find a way around it. I HIGHLY suggest you do just that.

How can YOU, Mommy or Daddy, be there for your kids needs, if you are not there? How can you be there for the first step, word, mind boggling breakthrough, if you are not there. Instead, you must rely on the stranger to tell you about it. Check out Dr. Laura's new book "In Praise For Stay at Home Moms"

But then you have an even darker side. The abuse, neglect, and carelessness. Not to mention your kids are learning things you may not agree with. Let's talk about the dark side of Day Care. Take this story. From Yahoo News / AP - Baby found dead in day care van; driver arrested By CARRIE ANTLFINGER, Associated Press Writer Carrie Antlfinger, Associated Press Writer – Thu Apr 9, 10:36 pm ET

MILWAUKEE – A 4-month-old boy was found dead in a day care center's van Thursday and its driver was arrested, police said.

Get the first IWA ready. The Driver.

The baby may have been left in the Bumble Bee Day Care Center van for about four hours before he was found Thursday afternoon, police spokeswoman Anne E. Schwartz said. How the baby died was not immediately known; the temperature in the area was in the 50s at the time.

Schwartz says the van's 44-year-old driver was arrested on a tentative felony charge of leaving a child in a child care vehicle unattended. His name was not immediately released.

I tried to get it and was told I can not use it. I do not know why. But there you go.

The child's grandmother, Remona Williams, told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel the victim is Jalen Knox-Perkins and he had been attending Bumble Bee for about a month.

An autopsy was scheduled for Friday morning.


So maybe the OWNER of the Bumble Bee Day Care Center did not know, nor was to blame for what this true Idiot did. Maybe Remona Williams, or the MOTHER of Jalen Knox-Perkins, did not seach for information about the Day Care Center before enrolling little Jalen. Idiot Awards two and three. Maybe the Owner DID have a reason to be concerned?

Erika Monroe-Kane, a spokeswoman for the State Department of Children and Families, said Bumble Bee's owner also owns a preschool, Alphabet Street Learning Center. Both facilities have been shut down while the state investigates.

Both? Why?

An Alphabet Street employee there, who was later fired, was charged recently with breaking the arms of two children.

TWO? Why was she still THERE? Idiot Award four.

Bumble Bee had been licensed only since March and had some noncompliance issues that were not related to transportation, Monroe-Kane said. Alphabet Street has been licensed since 1990. Monroe-Kane said she only had immediate access to its records for the last two years but said it also had no recent issues regarding transportation of children.

WHY were these two places allowed to stay open to begin with? WHY, Ms. Monroe-Kane, if your department had so much problems with the Alphabet Street Learning Center, did you allow the Owner, which I also can not get the name of, open a Day Care? Idiot Award FIVE.

In February, a 48-year-old woman was charged with a felony after she allegedly left a 4-month-old in a closed vehicle in 80-degree weather in July.

OK. Someone needs to explain THIS one to me. "Monroe-Kane said she only had immediate access to its records for the last two years but said it also had no recent issues regarding transportation of children." Yet? "In February, a 48-year-old woman was charged with a felony after she allegedly left a 4-month-old in a closed vehicle in 80-degree weather in July." Uh? Huh?

At any rate, the Idiot award, that would be number SIX, goes to the OWNER of both Child Care Centers. Either SHE is completely incompetent, or completely careless. What is the screening process used to find employees? Are the Employees Family Members? Friends? What? Where was their supervision?

The Mother, and or Grandmother, are Idiots for not checking this out prior. The Driver, of course is an Idiot, and SHOULD be in Jail. The person, or persons that allowed the Owner of an already problemed Child Care Facility to open another one, should be fired. The Owner, should not only lose BOTH Child Care Centers and NEVER allowed to be in the care of children again, she should be arrested as well.

There was a lot of Idiots involved in this poor little innocent child's death. PLEASE folks, be careful that when it comes to raising your own children, that you do not make the same mistakes.
