However, Francesca is very disappointed that there has been “no remorse for their actions.” Kyler now goes to a different daycare as a result.

“Monitor your daycares closely and stay away from this facility, they do NOT deserve the privilege of teaching our children,” she cautioned parents.

    If YOU were feeding him correctly in the first place, YOU wouldn’t have had such a note in the first place!

    Don’t be blaming OTHER PEOPLE for YOUR stupidity and child abuse!!!

    You snowflakes blame everybody ELSE for YOUR lack of brains, reasoning, logic, and skills!!! If you’re going to breed, then YOU TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FROM DAY ONE!!!!

    1. chaidragonfire, you mean like what YOU just did? Blame the MOM for this teacher’s abusive behavior? For all YOU know, this child could be at a decent weight or maybe have some “baby fat” due to all this recent isolating and social distancing going on. Either way, your comment is assuming a LOT and quite rude! Under NO circumstances is it okay for a teacher to say such things to a child entrusted to their care–and that is true regardless of whether the kid weighs 40 lbs or 100 lbs!

    2. CHAIDRAGONFIRE… You and the “teacher” are absolutely ignorant to obesity in children, but this parent expecting further action and removing thier child from that “school” was an over reach too. They fired the teacher, they care, enough said on that.
      As to childhood obesity, I was a very over weight child, in fact I struggle with my eating habits still.
      My parents struggled with me though out my childhood to get my weight lowered…I spend my life with them controlling my meals, but they couldn’t control my every moment. At 4 or 5 I knew where to find or sneak food from… at home, grandparents’ house…everywhere. When at school I found food to buy or get from “friends”. 7-11 was open and available throughout my life.
      Some Parents try to shame their children…like I imagine you would, calling them “fat” and that will only lead to the person disliking you, like my Uncle that always called me “fat boy”, it didn’t help me and as an adult I disliked him because of it and couldn’t give a darn when he passed away, and I had friend that disliked a parent because of the same treatment from their parent. My parents while letting me know always that my weight was major problem, never shamed me.
      Until a person is ready for “change” it won’t happen, and with weight loss, surgery and diets will never work period unless you decide to make it work, and parents can’t, no matter how hard they try, enforce total control… and any educated and thinking person….unlike you and this teacher, would know that.
      I’m sure, if you examine your life you would likely find a vise you never learned to control…like being judgmental and vocalizing it.
