Child Care In Diaspora Is A Tricky Endeavour For Us Foreigners...

Should ALL Texas daycare centers be required to have surveillance cameras?

Ariel Murphy is fighting for Texas to mandate video surveillance at all daycares after Jessica Wiese, 45, received a 10-year prison sentence for child abuse.

A North Texas mother says she felt vindicated in December after the woman who abused her son at a McKinney daycare was convicted.
Jessica Wiese, 45, received a maximum 10-year prison sentence for abusing multiple children.
Ariel Murphy’s son, Kairo, is now 16 months old. He is too young to know or remember what happened to him.
Kairo was assaulted by Wiese while he was at daycare. He suffered multiple fractures to his femur, ribs and wrist.
Murphy says she lost her sense of security and basic trust in strangers.
“She robbed me of that…seriously,” Murphy said.
Wiese has appealed the conviction and a court date for that appeal is still pending.

The Collin County District Attorney’s office had seven other cases pending against Wiese which were all tried together this week.
On Wednesday, Wiese pleaded guilty to all seven abuse cases, which added on another 10-year prison term.
“They’re the most innocent ones among us. We have to be able to protect children. If we can’t protect children, we don’t have a justice system,” said Collin County’s District Attorney Greg Willis.
Murphy feels vindicated but she says she’s not done. She is in talks with local lawmakers to prevent abuses like this from happening to other families.
She is hoping to take her fight to Austin and hopefully even the national stage.
Murphy is pushing for a national care workers’ ‘do not hire’ registry. Her hope is these laws would cover both childcare, special-needs care and elderly care facilities.

She is also pushing for a video monitoring mandate at all daycare facilities.
Murphy says parents should have the opportunity to watch what goes on at their child’s daycare facility on a live feed accessible by phone.
There are several daycares that already provide that service.

How can you take such a young baby to a day care? Don’t you love your kids? Dollar ndio muhimu kuliko mtoto? Wanawake wetu kenya hunyonyesha mtoto hadi maziwa inaisha, and make our houses to be homes. Kama cost of living iko juu such that huwezi lea mtoto ukikimbizana na pesa heri mrudi nyumbani kenya

Are you sure? kwani how long is maternity leave in Kenya?

people are jobless here so they have all the time. maisha ni cheap huku

Every time you open your mouth you put your foot in…do you think they take the kids to day care out of choice???
How do you expect them to feed , clothe and house their kids if they don’t work???:rolleyes::rolleyes:

So are they jobless because there are no jobs or jobless because life is cheap? Be v truthful please.

Blame the democrats and their hate for families. A womans best place is in the home. Even that two income family cant meet their needs because the coporations know that they can pay you peanuts.and you will survive

Kenyans abroad are the Negro slaves that keep chasing the whiteman instead of staying in their independent nations. Why did they have to fight for freedom? Mzungu akiwa hapa Afrika ni mkoloni yet mnamfuata huko kwake kuosha elderly :meffi:meffi :meffi:14 Hour shifts kama LVN na LPN baada ya kupewa uhuru. Negroes ni ZEBU bila pembe.

I know of someone in the US who invited her unlearned aunt from gishagi to the states to baby sit for them. They claimed it would be way cheaper.

How do you arrive at that conclusion?

Its cheaper that way. And then while she’s there unatafuta marafiki zako who might need her services at a reduced fee. Akiwa na watoto kama tatu ako na chapaa poa than sitting idle kule ocha
