Moms claim daycare workers waxed their kids’ eyebrows
A hairy mystery is unfolding in Washington state, where a pair of distressed moms claim a daycare center waxed their children’s eyebrows.
One of the moms told local outlets she noticed her 2-year-old daughter, Lilayiah, was missing a patch of hair and had reddened skin when she picked her up last week.
“I knew she was missing her patch of hair because she has a unibrow and she was born like that,” Alyssa Salgado, 19, told WLTX News.
“She had a couple of tears in her eyes,” she added.
The concerned mom reached out to the nursery, run by the Boys and Girls Club of Benton and Franklin counties on the Columbia Basin College campus in Pasco.
She also spoke with other moms, including Glenda Maria Cruz, who said her toddler son’s unibrow was plucked the same day.
“I tried to touch his face. He doesn’t let me touch his face. He says, ‘No, no, stop,’ and it hurts me because that’s my baby,” said Cruz.
The moms, who said the center’s director scoffed at their concerns, filed a report with police Monday, KNDO reported.
Officials with the Washington State Department of Early Learning, which licenses the daycare, visited Monday and said their investigation would likely take about 30 days.
The Boys and Girls Club said in a statement that it would cooperate in the probe.
“I hope they figure out who did that to my daughter,” Salgado said.
