Often times, out of necessity, many parents of young children require childcare services including day care centers and nannies. Unfortunately, children are often the victims of neglect and abuse in these facilities, at schools, or at home through the actions of the nanny. Many times, neglect or abuse is unknown because the child might be scared to discuss the matter, or too young to communicate effectively.
Lack of supervision, neglect, sexual abuse, and physical abuse are real dangers anytime others care for the child. Children are frequently physically abused or neglected by staff members that might be inadequately screened or trained.
Insufficient screening or improper education can result in hiring reckless or dangerous employees. Other times, there is inadequate supervision over the staff required to protect the child. Consequently, children at the facility can become the victim of emotional and/or physical abuse, sexual assault, or other horrific acts.
