Child care worker reportedly asked 8-year-old to pee in cup for son's drug test

The assistant director of a South Carolina child care facility asked a child to pee in a cup so her son, who was recently released from jail, could pass a drug test and obtain a job, according to a Rock Hill police reported.

Fox 32 Chicago reported that the child’s mother, who was not named, said her 8-year-old son told her about the request made last week at New Beginning Child Care Center.

The mother called the daycare and spoke with the assistant director, who apologized multiple times for the incident, but explained her son’s employment challenges and his need of a urine sample for a job. The assistant director, who also was not named, reportedly woke the 8-year-old up during naptime and asked him to pee in a medicine bottle.

The news station reported that no one has been charged and it’s unclear whether that will change.
