MO daycare worker charged with assaulting 2-year-old

When you drop your child off to a daycare, you expect the highest amount of care will be given to your baby. Sadly, that is not always the case as seen in the latest case of child assault that happened in Springfield, Missouri. In addition, 46-year-old, Christina Hindman was charged with a misdemeanor third-degree assault in connection with the injury to a 2-year-old boy under her care.

Likewise, according to court documents, Hindman picked the boy up, and forcibly sat him down in a chair while she pushed his head into a wall. All of Hindman's actions were caught on surveillance video, and the incident was reported by another employee. Just before Hindman assaulted the 2-year-old, she pushed another child to the ground as well. The mother of the 2-year-old said her son also had a long bruise on his left forearm as well.
