Helping to Protect Your Child After Suspected Daycare Abuse in Mesa

There’s nothing more precious than children. And when we put our faith in someone to watch over our children, they have to do a good job.

People who run daycare centers have a responsibility to hire qualified personnel and make sure they have the right training and experience to keep your child safe. If you suspect that daycare staff are negligent or abusive, your child must be protected.

Signs of Daycare Abuse

Your child might not tell you if there’s something wrong. They may not realize when the adults who care for them are acting in an irresponsible or inappropriate manner. And sometimes abusers will tell a child not to talk about what happened.

Keep an eye on your child’s behavior and check for evidence of physical harm. Signs of daycare abuse include:

  • Mood swings
  • Fear
  • Loss of trust
  • Acting out
  • Acting clingy or withdrawn
  • Regression
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Cuts and bruises
  • Aches, pains, and stomachaches
  • Soreness in mouth or genitals

What Causes Daycare Abuse?

Daycare abuse is not the regular scrapes and bumps that children get while they’re out playing. It’s avoidable injuries and harm that result when incompetent or cruel staff members are allowed to work with children.

Negligent hiring and inadequate supervision are the main causes of daycare abuse. The people who own and manage daycare centers have a responsibility to screen all employees to protect your child. It’s also essential to monitor staff and make sure your child isn’t alone with someone who could harm them.

Failure to report and lack of oversight result when the people who own daycare centers don’t know what they’re doing, or when they try to save money by neglecting to direct the proper resources to child safety.

Frequent types of daycare abuse that we see in our office include:

  • Physical abuse
  • Neglect
  • Sexual abuse
  • Bullying
  • Sexual grooming
  • Emotional abuse

Remove Your Child and Report the Incident Right Away

It’s crucial to protect your child. And it’s also important to take steps to prevent other children from being harmed. The first thing you’ll want to do is ask your child if anyone has mistreated them.

Write down everything your child says and take photographs to document any injuries your child has. Have your child see a pediatrician right away if they have any out-of-the-ordinary injuries.

If you suspect abuse, remove your child from the facility and file a claim with the Arizona Department of Child Safety. You’ll also want to hire an attorney as soon as possible.
