According to Police reports, the Nanny reported to have yelled at the seven-year old girls
in the Memorial Park bathroom as described in our first story, has been identified. Sources say the family that employed her has fired her.
A lawyer for the family that employed the Nanny contacted theLoop and requested we remove the photograph of the young child in a photograph with that Nanny in a subsequent report. Although not legally required to do so, we did.
An e-mail was then sent to the lawyer to facilitate a friendly meeting between Pam Sullivan, the mother who witnessed the incident, her husband J. Mark Lane, and the family employing the Nanny. That request was declined by their attorney,
Camille Joseph Kassar, of a firm in Chatham, New Jersey.
Sullivan says , "My primary motive in writing my story was to relate what happened in the hope that the family would learn of the incident and deal with their nanny. Secondarily, I hoped that other mothers who employ caregivers would also take heed and make an effort to investigate how their caregivers behave when they think no one is watching."
If you get our Friday Loop Scoops , we wrote this on 8/14:
- who cares for our children?
- is there underlying racism or elitism among some of us?
- are we litigation happy?
- when both parents work, why are they often criticized?
- when should town employees intervene?
an incident a local mother was never meant to witness becomes
a passion play in the ‘burbs.
we still think it’s an important conversation.
