Dear Crown Heights residents,
I was walking on Kingston Avenue this morning, and I must tell you about what I saw.
It is absolutely brutally cold out today, and I met a babysitter taking a baby out for a walk.
The child is exposed, no scarf, no gloves, and her coat is open.
When I asked the babysitter, “it’s freezing cold outside, you’re bundled up, how come the child is not?”
She just nodded and said, “don’t worry,” and continued on her way.
This is not the first time I’ve seen this while out on Kingston Avenue during the cold winter. I have seen many cleaning ladies taking babies and little children out for a walk.
These kids are without the proper clothing, and they are crying. The babysitters are just not concerned about the children, and it truly breaks my heart.
Parents, please be extremely careful! Make it clear to your babysitters: If my child is not bundled up properly when you take them out, you will be fired.
