Example of poor childcare
Here’s a letter from a Hoboken411 reader who witnessed a horrible parent/nanny sighting this past weekend.
Very Poor Childcare
“I wanted to bring to you and your reader’s attention a bad nanny/parent sighting my family witnessed on Sunday.
At approx. 11:15 a.m. in the Rite Aid parking lot (on Willow) we noticed a brand new Silver Town & Country NJ plate # WTN 87 F (or S) with a 6mo BABY left locked in the front passenger seat. As we walked into the store to find the guardian, she walked out. Could have been a mom or nanny. The more we thought about it it seemed to be something we couldn’t let go… a) she had 2 full shopping bags full of stuff and b) the child was in the front seat! The check out woman admitted that she had been chatting with someone insidew for a while and was not in a rush.
We called the HPD, but she had driven away and they, regretfully, said they couldn’t do much at that point.
As a concerned parent, either there’s a nanny that needs to be exposed for neglecting and endangering the welfare of an infant or there’s a mother out there that is neglecting and endangering the welfare of her baby. Either scenario is awful and something should be done either way.”
