It is hard to understand why anyone would harm a baby or child. It is especially concerning when a young teenager is responsible for committing a sex crime. Some Wisconsin residents believe it may be tied to their upbringing, as young children and teenagers are often a product of their environment. Leading research shows that children who have been physically, emotionally or sexually abused, have a greater tendency to display abusive behavior as well.
Parents of children who attend Red Caboose Daycare Center in Madison were recently informed that the center may be closing soon due to the findings of an investigation involving sexual abuse. A 13-year-old volunteer was said to have sexually abused a 2-year-old child who attended the daycare. Evidence of sexual abuse was found by the Dane County Department of Human Services.
