Mother Of 2-Year-Old Girl Got Mad When Daycare Workers Waxed Her Kid's Eyebrows: ‘They Had No Right To Change Her’

Date April 6, 2018

When Allyssa Saldago, a mother of a 2-year-old girl, shared her story on Facebook, it caused a huge reaction from other parents. Alyssa was shocked when a daycare waxed her daughter’s eyebrows without her permission: “They had no right to change her.”

Alyssa Saldago and her story

Alyssa Saldago had no idea that an ordinary day in a daycare would turn into a real disaster for her and her 2-year-old daughter.

When Alyssa picked up her daughter at a Washington state daycare, she was shocked to realize what they did to her little girl. The staff waxed her daughter’s eyebrows without her parents’ permission.

The mother was angry with an idea that some people could correct the way her daughter should look in their opinion. When Alyssa and her baby came home, she noticed a big red spot on the girl’s face. At first, she thought it was just a scratch, but when she looked closer she understood it was a mark between her eyebrows after someone allegedly waxed them.

The irate mother called immediately the director, but she just responded that none of her staff could do such a thing to her daughter.


Alyssa got mad when the director called her a liar. The next day, she came to see the principal in person, but the woman again rejected any possibility that somebody of the daycare staff waxed the girls’ eyebrows.

She was like, ‘Well, I trust my staff.’ I said, ‘Well, I don’t. You need to take better responsibility for your staff.’

The daycare is run by the Boys and Girls Club on the Columbia Basin College. Alyssa Saldago decided to share this story with other parents to prevent them from the similar situations that can happen to any kid.

I just want justice for my daughter. I want the person who did this to apologize to my daughter for what they did to her. I don’t want this to happen again to her or to anybody else.

Alyssa added what happened to her daughter was absolutely inappropriate: “They had no right to change her.”


The mother said she’s going to advocate for her daughter and wants her voice to be heard.
