Can you imagine dropping your child off at a daycare and then noticing their brows being waxed? If the thought of that imagine hit a nerve, imagine what two Latina mom's had to go through when they realized child's unibrow had been removed.
Alyssa Salgado, who dropped off her 2-year-old off at a daycare at Columbia Basin Community College while she attended classes, revealed that when she picked up her daughter she had a noticeably red mark in between her brows. Though Salgado initially thought it was just a scratch after further inspection she realized the toddler's unibrows were waxed.
Outraged by the incident, the mom confronted the daycare's director, who simply laughed at the accusation. "I take my daughter to the CBC Daycare to be cared for while I'm at school trying to focus on graduating! Then I go pick up my daughter yesterday and saw a red mark in between her eye brows I think it's a scratch but as soon as a get home I get a closer look these WOMEN decided to WAX MY DAUGHTERS uni brow," Salgado wrote on Facebook.
She added, "I immediately started to contact the director of the day care in many texts she tried to come up with multiple excuses then this morning I take my daughter in person to the director. She laughs in my face telling me a bunch of lies and I do get upset!"
Along with sharing the story behind the incident, the mom uploaded before and after photos of her hija's brow.
According to Salgado, she wasn't the only one who noticed eyebrow waxing on their child. Another mother by the name of Glenda Maria Cruz also noticed that her son's unibrow was removed. Cruz also took to Facebook to talk about her own incident. "My son can't talk and I don't know what he has been through and it's really hard ... because he's just a baby. He can't defend himself," Cruz wrote.
According to Tri-City Herald, the state and the Boys & Girls Club of Benton and Franklin Counties are currently investigating the mother's waxing allegations. “The Boys and Girls Club takes these allegations seriously and will work to support the investigation process,” the nonprofit said in a statement.
