The parents of a 4-year-old Missouri girl are demanding answers and action after a picture apparently showing the child duct-taped to a chair at her day care was brought to their attention.
According to WBRC, parents Elysha Brooks and Christian Evans said they were unaware that anything was wrong until they were contacted by the Department of Children and Family Services and sent a picture showing their 4-year-old daughter taped to a chair.
Brooks told the news station that she believes the picture was taken while her daughter was a student at Little Learners day care in Florissant, Mo. And now the parents say they won’t be happy until action is taken so that another child will not have to face similar treatment.
As investigation into the incident continues, and Brooks is pleading with families to make sure they do thorough research on child care facilities.
“Double check on these day cares before you go to them, because I thought my daughter was safe,” she said.
