There are a lot of twisted people in this world. Some of the most sickening, and most twisted, are people who abuse children and then try to justify their abuse.
This was the case with Nosipho Nxumalo, 21, a nanny who used a hot curling iron to burn a two-year-old boy in Long Island, New York, because the boy wouldn’t behave, WGN reported.
“She said he hit her earlier. Well, he’s going to be 3, there’s a reason they call it the ‘terrible twos,’ they do that a lot,” explained Angela Persaud, the boy’s mother.
Persaud found out about the abuse when she was giving her child a bath and he yelled in pain when she touched a burn on his arm, WNBC reported.
The mother then checked the home’s security video and found truly disturbing footage of the nanny burning the boy.
The nanny has been charged with “assault, criminal possession of a weapon and endangering the welfare of a child,” with bail set at $25,000.
WPVI noted that Persaud was deeply disturbed by the security footage, which appeared to show Nxumalo playing some sort of “warped mind games.”

“You can tell that she’s telling him, ‘That’s what happens when you don’t listen,’ and then she hugs him,” she explained. “So she’s playing these warped mind games with my child, and it’s the most disgusting thing I’ve ever witnessed in my life.”
Persaud used this horrific incident as a chance to warn parents all around the country to be extra careful before hiring a nanny — even one found through an agency.
Hopefully, Nxumalo is jailed for a long time so she won’t be able to hurt any more children.
