A mom in Pasco, Washington, is fuming that a day care worker allegedly waxed her toddler's eyebrows. According to Q13 Fox, Alyssa Salgado says that an employee at the day care run by Boys & Girls Club of Benton and Franklin counties waxed her 2-year-old daughter's eyebrows on Thursday.
"I take my daughter to the CBC Daycare to be cared for while I'm at school trying to focus on graduating!" the 19-year-old mom, who dropped her daughter off so she could attend high school, shared in a Facebook post. "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."
In the image, the child's eyebrows appear groomed in the middle, and there is visible redness in the area. Salgado goes on to share how outraged she is by the incident, saying the day care worker denied doing it.
"She laughs in my face telling me a bunch of lies and I do get upset!!! I AM A MOTHER NOTHING LIKE THIS SHOULD EVER HAPPEN AND THEY HAD NO RIGHT TO TOUCH MY DAUGHTER AT ALL. I birthed my daughter and love every little thing about her and these so called women took it upon themselves to correct the way my daughter should look," she said.
She said that a similar occurrence happened with another child, and she vowed to get the story out: "I will not let this get unnoticed. I would like this to get out, imagine if this was your son or daughter and if they were waxing them imagine how much pain you would be in.... I can imagine her calling out mommy and I wasn't there to protect her I failed her. But I refuse to let this go unnoticed!!!"

Officials with the Boys & Girls Club and the Washington Department of Early Learning have confirmed that they are investigating the matter.
"The Boys and Girls Club takes these allegation seriously and will work to support the investigation process," the organization said in a statement on Monday.
