Bruises, Cuts, Scratches, Etc.
If your child ever comes home from their daycare facility with physical signs of injury, you may need to consider that they have been abused, mistreated, or intentionally harmed. If the day care does not inform you immediately that an incident took place that may be a red flag that they are trying to hide an injury that took place. If they do not provide documentation that details the events that caused the injury you should ask for a report right away and possibly even have your child seen by a doctor for medical documentation, which could be helpful down the road if you do decide to pursue a legal case with an Atlanta day care abuse lawyer.
Emotional and Mood Swings or Changes
When abuse isn’t physical it can be harder to spot, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t there. If you notice that your child is suddenly having mood swings, being overly emotional for small things, more irritable than before, or other changes, this may be a sign that they are being mistreated while at daycare. Keep a journal or other documentation that keeps track of emotional changes so that it can be used later for your case or help you determine if it is simply a coincidence, and your child is just tired or having a hard time emotionally for a different reason.
Fear of Daycare
It is normal for children to have some separation anxiety, especially if they are young or not used to being apart from their parents or usual caregiver. However, if you feel that your child has what appears to be an extreme fear or refusal to go into daycare this could be a red flag about what is happening while they are there – especially if they were fine to be dropped off previously. Children, especially young ones, often are not able to fully explain their emotions with words, but it may be a good idea to take the time to get more information from them directly even though it will take time and patience to do so.
