At a birthday party, a 3 year old boy forced my 2 year old daughters head into a dirty pool of water submerging it for an unknown amount of time. She pushed herself up to scream and get my attention before he pushed her head back into the water. She gasped for air afterwards but seemed otherwise ok, aside from crying uncontrollably. The mother didn't notice the near drowning or me screaming at the boy telling him that he could have killed her but several other parents did. He screamed back "She needs to get down!" I am mortified, traumatized and in shock. I notified the day care that they both attend. Should I file a police report? File charges? The mother works at my company. Several parents told me afterwards that the boy is very aggressive.
