A Connecticut mom claims her three-year-old son was cruelly taunted by his day care teacher. Mom Tyesha Reese says that her son, Michael Santana, was ridiculed and bullied by teacher Lindsay Cavallaro at Sleeping Giant Day Care in Hamden. And Cavallaro saved us all the trouble of he said/she said by recording the whole thing on her cell phone, and then putting it on the internet. Watch below.

Among other things, Cavallaro is heard telling Michael, "News flash, sweetheart. I don’t really like you either ‘cause you throw toys." When the frustrated tyke threatens to throw her phone, she goads him: "Do it. Go ahead. No balls. Oh you’re a tough guy. Hey boss, show me your nine."

"It hurt because he was defenseless," Reese said. "He was sitting in a chair and as a child he was trying to defend himself." Reese immediately pulled Michael from the day care center after the video was passed onto her; Cavallaro has been put on paid leave while the day care center investigates. "Our number one priority at all times is to provide quality and safe childcare for all of the children at Sleeping Giant Day Care," the center said in a statement.
