MIDLAND – The Midland Reporter Telegram has shared the story of a Button Law Firm client after their three-year-old child was physically, emotionally, and psychologically abused by his caregivers at daycare. The article shares details of the abuse at Greenwood Baptist Children’s Learning Center, “The mother claimed caregivers at the day care left her son in a kitchen pantry with the lights off, sprayed him with toxic disinfectant and forced him to sit next to a trash can for an excessive amount of time. The lawsuit also claims that the day care violated state laws by waiting several days to report the incidents to the mother and the state of Texas.”
According to the article’s reporting of the lawsuit, the mistreatment was not surprising after a November 2022 investigation by the Texas Health and Human Services Commission substantiated the mother’s claims.
Additionally, the article states, “The complaint says that the church’s board, director and staff were aware of the frequent mistreatment of children at the daycare. The suit says leaders at the church intentionally ignored numerous reports that put an ‘unimaginable number of children at direct risk of serious harm or injury,’ the lawsuit alleges.”
The article shares a quote by attorney Russell Button of The Button Law Firm, saying “We are disturbed by the abusive and negligent treatment that our client’s young son endured at Greenwood Baptist Children’s Learning Center. We are committed to holding the day care accountable and, hopefully, in the process of this lawsuit, protect other children in the Midland community from suffering similar traumatic experiences.”
