Police in central city of Fabriano have suspended a kindergarten teacher for abusing her students by insulting and hitting them, authorities said on Tuesday. According to the police, the woman abused the children both physically and psychologically, making their lives at school miserable and undermining their balance and serenity. The investigation began after the mother of a student became suspicious as she noticed a change in her child's mood, as he didn't want to go to school anymore and started to wake up at night and talk to his stuffed animals telling them: "Don't you do it anymore, understood? I'm not telling you again, you're punished. Go over there and think about what you did". After the woman alerted the authorities, the police questioned other parents and it emerged that also their children had similar problems. The investigation determined that the teacher insulted and hit the children, who were also threatened of serious retaliation if they tols anyone about what happened in the kindergarten.
