Texas Daycare Owner Arrested for Drugging Children So They Would SleepMolly Thornberg
As a working mom, I KNOW the importance of needing to know my children are safe when not in my care. If your child goes to daycare – just a warning – the following details are disturbing.
Kimberly Lane, a Texas daycare owner was arrested and charged with 16 counts of child endangerment for concoting what was called special milk and giving to the children who did not like to take naps sleep.
The special milk was made by mixing an over-the-counter antihistamine with milk and then was given to the children.
Police were tipped off by a concerned employee and report luckily no injuries in the children who received it. Read more about the arrest at msnbc.com.
This daycare is about 30 miles from where we live. Sadly I know disturbing situation and child care happen everywhere – but this is just too close to home. This daycare has been inspected by Texas Department of Family and Protective Services seven times since June 2, 2010. Several inspections as such as standard here in Texas for registered day care facilities. While violations were found during that time, none overwhelmingly scream BAD DAYCARE.
