Most of our days start the same. Pot of coffee, breakfast for the little ones, dress, and it’s time to go. We pack the kiddos in the van and head off, dropping one off at school, the other at daycare. The second cup of coffee later and time for work.
A few hours in, we get a call. Local police have found our youngest out in the freezing cold riding a tricycle.
That’s the call parents in Erie County received when their two-year-old boy was found in the streets.

There is a reason toddlers are compared to “tiny drunk adults.” They are crafty, stubborn, clumsy, tiny people with no impulse control. When it comes to childproofing, even Safety First, a popular brand of childproofing equipment, has begun to put fake buttons on their devices because toddlers keep figuring out how to get past them. As soon as a toddler realizes they can’t go into that cabinet, cannot touch that light socket, cannot run out the front door, they become devious escape artists waiting for their opportunity.
When you leave your toddler with a babysitter, another child’s parents, school, or daycare center, you expect them to be prepared. However, in Sandusky, Ohio, police officers found a 2-year-old escapee riding his tricycle down a busy street.
“I really couldn’t believe it, especially that time of the day and the temperature, barely dressed, just walking on this little scooter in the middle of the street,” Officer David West said.
The young boy was found disoriented with wet pants and socks. As the officers went door-to-door to find the responsible daycare, they found a home daycare with no childproofing on the doors. The daycare has been responsible for four other children who have run out of the home unsupervised in the last five years.
Erie County Children’s Services were called. They have charged the owner with endangering children.
Daycare negligence is a problem. Children are hurt every day because the adult in charge was not paying attention. It doesn’t matter if the caregiver was scrolling on their phone, turned away for a few minutes, stepped outside, did not childproof adequately. The fact is your child is hurt and you are angry.
