A diary when they come back is an excellent idea - always check for prior bruising or unexplained bumps etc and make sure you get parent to sign to be clear it didn't happen at your house!

Poor kids :(

Good job you were on the ball - it's really hard trying to tell someone they can't pick up a child isn't it
