Mother Of 5-Year-Old Enraged After Teacher Leaves Fat-Shaming Note In Boy's Lunchbox

Mother Of 5-Year-Old Enraged After Teacher Leaves Fat-Shaming Note In Boy's Lunchbox

Francesca Easdon, a mother from Kingwood, Texas, revealed that the staff member responsible for the nasty note was fired.

Placing one's child under the care of someone else is always nerve-wracking for parents who love their kids more than anything in the world. With news outlets revealing the horrors of child abuse at daycare centers and other educational institutions, it takes a lot for parents to knowingly leave their little ones with them. No matter how much you ask around or research about a particular place, you can never be sure of the reality that takes place in your absence. That's exactly the kind of revolting experience with a daycare that a mother of a 5-year-old from Kingwood, Texas, unveiled. 


Francesca Easdon took to Facebook to share how a staff member at the Rocking Horse daycare in Kingwood scribbled a nasty message on what was supposed to be a sweet reminder for her son to let him know how much she loves him. In addition to describing the bad experience, the mother revealed that the person responsible for the rude message has since been fired. Posting a picture of the note, Easdon wrote: We have been working with Kyler on his eating, he’s extremely picky! I have been introducing new healthy options in his lunchbox and discussed the changes with his school.


And for the record, I feel that Kyler is absolutely perfect the way he is, I’m just helping him make healthier choices. Instead of his school being supportive I am in absolute shock at what happened. I sent this note in Kylers lunchbox, thinking that it would make him smile at lunch time, but instead, I received this in return from one of the teachers! continued the post. Now, the original note that Easdon had written for her son read: "Please tell my son that his mommy loves him so much and that I'm thinking about him." Unfortunately, the one she got back had an additional message that said, "No! Put him on a diet and go away!"


Continuing further she wrote: Of course I was absolutely livid and immediately reached out to the school. First thing this morning I was at the school waiting on the director with my mother-in-law for a meeting. I was assured that it was being investigated and handled, yet almost no remorse was shown. I also brought to their attention the fact that on his teacher's public Facebook page there were mass posts regarding drug use and other very inappropriate content. The teacher that wrote this note confessed while I was at work and was fired, but nothing has been done about the other situations. Zero remorse for their actions. I am disgusted that I put my trust in these people to care for my child and this is what I get in return. 


During an interview with WABC-TV, the livid mom expressed just how shocked she was on reading the unpleasant note. "It took a minute to register, what I even saw and I just kept re-reading it and I just stood there for a minute," she said. Following this rude behavior, Easdon removed her son from the daycare and enrolled him in another facility. "I'm worried about the higher cost but I will make it work, no matter what I have to do. Kyler's safety and level of care comes first. Sorry for the long post but I feel it’s so important to share this. I'm extremely hands-on with my child's care and still didn’t see this coming. Monitor your daycares closely and stay away from this facility, they do NOT deserve the privilege of teaching our children," she warned.
