PASADENA, TX – A Texas daycare worker is under investigation for jerking a baby around.

The incidents were captured on camera by the Texans Learning Center in Pasadena.

According to KTRK, the mother of 6-month-old Christian was shocked to see it.

“He’s so small, I don’t understand. Why? Why did she do this to him?” the baby’s mother asked.

The first video shows Christian’s┬ádaycare worker yank his arm up and swing him back onto his chair.

She then gives him a bottle and moves on.

In the second video, she jerks his head back to keep him from sitting up.

Parents of children at the daycare can watch the videos remotely.

Christian’s mother watched the video from work.

She later confronted the daycare worker and reported the incident to police.

“I want her to be punished for it,” the mother added.

The daycare center confirmed to Eyewitness News that the worker has been fired.

They say they are cooperating with the police investigation.

“As a parent myself, I wouldn’t want that either. It’s good she (the mother) brought the video to our attention. It was pretty bad,” said Arcilia Aranda, the daycare director.

Christian isn’t going back to the daycare and his mother hopes the worker never goes back to any child care again.

“She shouldn’t be around kids. She couldn’t handle it. I don’t feel should be around kids, at all,” the mother said.
