Overnight, some angry neighbour had thrown a pot of white paint at my son's daycare center. It could've been plain vandalism. But my son's daycare center has been in the news a lot recently as this isn't the first incident and I'm afraid it won't be the last. Eggs, packets of flour and oranges have landed in its gardens. One of the neighbours once took out a megaphone and shouted names at the children playing outside. I decided to do what I could and wrote an article about it, from a mother's perspective. It was published in today's Dutch newspaper, NRC Next. I hope the officials take note.
