A Florida woman was shocked to see her son’s chest and belly had a message in marker written from his day care worker asking for more diapers.
The worker was fired from work following the incident, which went viral after the mother-of-two shared it on Facebook seeking opinions from users, CNN reported.
Heather Chisum shared pictures of her son Milo’s stomach bearing the message ‘Mom I’m out of diapers pls read my report’ in her post and revealed how even after using wipes several times, the ink did not come off. ‘Am I right to be furious about this? Or am I over reacting?’, the mother asked in her Facebook post.
She explained that the day care usually leaves reports about children in their lunch boxes and added she meets teachers there while dropping and picking up her kids. ‘I’m a single mom with a full time job and two very young children. Sue me for not reading the report every single day’, the irked mother wrote, adding a message from one of them “would have done the trick”.
The post was shared on January 28 and has since been shared over 29,000 times with many calling the day care worker’s action inappropriate.
One Facebook user commented: ‘File a report! Totally not ok or appropriate. I am so mad for you! You are human with a lot on your plate. It’s easy to miss a couple things, there are many better ways to go about informing you’. While another wrote: ‘Unreal. Who does that to a child?’
