Care.com. Seriously, you're putting her at risk of it happening again if you continue to bring her over there. And if she says something at school or to another adult, and said person calls CPS, YOU will be charged with child endangerment.



Make sure it doesn't happen again.

I would never allow my child to be with her alone again. I would not send my child there knowing what will happen. How could anyone. .. I'd flee the country before I let someone hit my kid..

I wish I could afford to pay someone. Day cares said no that it wasn't long enough and she had to do more time. I make just over minimum wage. I can't pay for that

I haven't. I try not to talk to her if at all possible. I'm going to call her now though and see why she was hit

Uh yeah.. And while I was there I'd be making a police report against her.

Just be aware accusing someone of child abuse is serious. Remember her Nana probably comes from a time where telling a kid to grab a switch off a bush and bend over was common. PERSONALLY, I would confront her about it, especially if it hasn't happened before.

This! If someone else sees the bruises or suspects the abuse you will be the one under investigation by CPS not her nana and during a physical abuse case the child will be removed from your care.

Okay, well you should maybe have communication with the person watching your child. Hello. I get that she's probably a crazy b***h, but if she's THE ONLY person you have to watch your kid, you need to get over it and get communicating. Sheesh.

Find a high schooler or something to watch her till you can make more permanent arrangements. File for child care assistance so you can report it to the police and she'll have somewhere to stay while you work because her dad isn't going to be able to keep her if he lives with her grandma.

I would call her and find out what happened and let her know that she is never to touch your child like that again otherwise you will be contacting the police.

I talk to her when I have to, but I don't go out of my way to talk to her. She's trying to get my ex to take my kid from me because I have a mental illness. It makes it hard when she sits there telling me shit didn't happen its just me being crazy

Just echoing everyone else. Take pictures, call the police. Don't let her be unsupervised near 'Nana' again.



WTF did your daughter do that she 'deserved' to be beaten? That's what I want to know.
If it were my kid, I would move heaven and earth to ensure it didn't happen again. IDK if it means working another job to pay for a proper daycare or babysitter.

Okay, well then you need to arrange something else for your kid. You don't have a lot of options here. REPORT it. Before it gets too much later. Like has been said, if you don't, you could very well find yourself being the one accused of abuse-maybe even by crazy nana. I'd nip this shit in the bud right now. Talk to your job. Change your hours. Get a new job. Whatever.

If u did that to her and cps knew They would immediately take your child away. Its abuse plain and simple. You can get in trouble for letting it go on. What if next time it's worse. ..smh
