messageNanny or childminder hitting child in shop
Posted by Marks2111 March 08, 01:15PM

Hi
I feel compelled to post this as if I was the mother of this child I would be horrified. This afternoon (Friday) I was in St Christopher’s on lordship lane and I witnessed a child in a buggy being hit repeatedly (thumped with a hand) a number of times. The child was strapped in to a bugaboo cream cameleon buggy and the childminder or nanny was busy perusing the shop. She left the buggy with the child in it a few metres away while she looked at clothes - but the child accidentally knocked over some books from a nearby bookshelf. Something very easily done, and seeing as the child was being ignored I am not surprised. It was not a big deal - but the lady who was looking after the child screamed at him ‘I have told you not to do that’ and then whacked him across the upper arm and chest.

I do not want to give out any further information on the description of the lady or the boy, but if you are a concerned mother drop me a line as I do have a photo.

Whoever did this it is awful, but what makes you think the woman was not the child's mother?

If you think a child is in immediate danger you should call the police on 999 or the NSPCC on 0808 800 5000

It doesn't matter what the relationship is between the child and the adult.

I would tell the police - they can get the CCTV. I'm guessing you have a reason to think the person was not the kid's mother, but god if that had been my child I cannot express how much I would want to know.

In the meantime do you have any more description of the carer and child?

Yes, if you witness an adult assaulting a child, you should report that to the police

If you have a photo, make a police report
