Texas Daycare Accused of Duct Taping Kids to Sleeping Mats

ABC News is reporting that Heart2Heart Montessori Academy in Willow Park, Texas, is under investigation by a state agency for allegedly duct taping two children to their sleeping mats for refusing to go to sleep during nap time.

The director of the school, Ashlea Pena, said that while the incident was "foolish" and "thoughtless," that the children were not harmed and went on to describe the situation as being "extremely exaggerated by a very upset parent."

She also said the child in the photo woke up smiling after falling asleep within 5 minutes of being taped down.

The child licensing division of Texas' Department of Family and Protective Services is looking into incident. ABC News reports the Willow Park Police will also conduct a criminal investigation.

LOL! Been there done that but I used the precursor to duct tape, baling wire.

Try to imagine what it’s like to get a group of ten or so pre-schoolers to take a nap at the same time on the schools schedule. (and this is a Montessori school?). Handcuffing the young ‘uns to the cots might have been better than using up all that duct tape (relax....I’m kidding)

Red Green is my hero. Gun safety during hunting season was my favorite.

hey..kids escape

..my mom told me that as a baby I was always escaping from my wooden play pen....I would lay on my back and kick the wooden slats out... drove her nuts

a little duct tape sounds like a good idea

My mom tried everything to keep me in my bed. Ended up with some sort of harness that strapped me in but let me roll around without getting strangled. And I was fairly old (3 to 4??)

The last straw was her getting up one morning to pull my older siblings bag lunches out of the fridge that she had made and packed the night before. I had eaten all three PBJ sandwiches and the three cookies! (I think she said the carrots were still there.)

Maybe this will this work with politicians, too?

For politicians, my book says rope and lamp-posts.

Your mileage may vary. Batteries not included. Secret Service visits should be referred to your lawyer.

When I got hurt in 2009, as I came out of the induced coma, I asked by hand sign for a pen and pad, so I could ask for CNN to be turned off the TV.

I was strapped down because I was entubated, and they didn't want me to rip the tubes out.

As the nurse handed me the pad, and the pen, my sister sorta yelled: "NO!".

Too late.

We reached an agreement. They killed the TV right away, and then they nuked me via the big port into my aorta. I hate opiates.

When I woke up, they did get rid of the tube, and released the straps carefully and stood back.

I was fine. It wasn't like I was going to walk off, hooked up to all that gear, and missing some organs.
