I am a childcare provider as well as a parent ,grandparent. I would never hit a child that was in my care I don't understand what is wrong with providers anymore. If the law isn't going to change to protect those that are young and innocent and unable to defend themselves then maybe think about how our laws are broken . I honestly can say this provider wouldn't need court if it was my child I would. Punish ALL child abusers
How can you sit and let people get away with this. That's like saying OK u can beat a child as long as they can't talk Does that mean we can beat a adult till they are senseless and can't talk and tell how they feel or who did it. Unbelievable the Proof is in the pictures and the Drs notes and it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure that is abuse
A am signing this petition because justice has not been served. I want to one day have kids and trust that if something were to happen to my child, then there would be justice immediately. Children rely on there parents to fix things. And parents rely on the justice system to get justice, yet there is no justice here. This law must be changed or more children will continue to be abused and not be helped because they cannot speak for themselves.
This law needs to be changed. A baby deserves even more protection from or laws because they cannot speak for themselves. If the parents had been suspected of doing this to their child, they would have been arrested and jailed, so why is a babysitter not held to the same punishments. This is ridiculous.
