It can be nerve-racking as a parent to leave you children in someone else's care. Thankfully, I have some amazing friends who are also some great babysitters. People I know that would do anything to keep my kids safe while in their care.

Martha McClure is a daycare worker who takes her job very, very seriously, and rightfully so. As she said in a recent TV interview, once parents drop off their kids... they become hers. She protects them like she would protect her own.

Last week, a 31-year-old father showed up angry, cursing, and demanding his kids. Martha confronted the Francis Joseph Jackson, who she knew had no legal right to the kids. One of the aids took the children to a safe place where they were oblivious as to what was happening.

She ended up getting beaten by the man and his 21-year-old girlfriend with not only fists, but also with a shovel. They fled the scene, but he was quickly taken into custody and she was arrested over the just days later.

There has been a tremendous outpouring of support for McClure which you can find out about here. It's an absolute shame that there are people like Francis Joseph Jackson in the world. But thanks to the fearlessness and determination of people Martha McClure in the world, many parents can sleep a little easier.
