If you forgot for a brief minute you can’t let just anybody watch your kids, let this story be a reminder.
The South Carolina Department of Social Service and police in Gaffney, SC, are currently investigating a daycare in the city after a picture of a 15-year-old girl with her toes in the month of a 7-month-old baby popped up on Snapchat.
According to police, the teen, who’s not related to the baby, took the picture when she went to visit the daughter of the homeowner where the infant was being cared for. When the image went viral, it caught the attention of other parents who say they drop their children off at the same home.
Though the teen isn’t facing any charges for the troubling image she posted, police are investigating the circumstances surrounding the photo, as is social services to see whether other kids are indeed being cared for at the home which is not registered with the state as a daycare facility and would need licensing (at the very least). A “No Trespassing” sign now sits in the front yard of the home which neighbors told local news they believe operated as a daycare. The case has now been referred to the South Carolina Department of Juvenile Justice, which could lead to family court. A butt whooping is probably also in order for the Snapchatting teen… but that’s none of our business.
