A Texas day care is under fire after a staffer snapped a photo of a child duct taped to a sleeping mat.

Lorrie Almquist said her 3-year-old son is one of two boys who had been duct taped during nap time at Heart2Heart Montessori Academy in Parker County.

Almquist said the day care had been complaining for weeks that her son wouldn’t sleep during nap time.

The photo was taken by an employee who has since quit her job.

Heart2Heart Montessori Academy defended the actions, saying the students were never in any danger.
