My mom thinks my daughter isn't safe with me. Just because she is forever bumping her head into things and fell out of a chair a couple times my mom thinks I'm not protecting her enough. So I get upset because she's insinuated this a couple times already, my husband gets involved and she in turn threatens to call CPS on us. I'm not worried about CPS coming by. They're not going to find anything wrong. I'm just wondering if my mom is serious? And should I take it as far as not allowing her to see her grand daughter? Sounds harsh, but I'm not exactly overjoyed by her threat to me.Answer Question

My mom did this to me with my first child, and unfortunately I was young (18) and dumb and scared of losing my daughter she threatened SOOOO much that I finally gave her legal guardianship, which to this day I regret, my daughter is now 6 years old and lives in another state with my mom, I rarely get to see her because its so far, I hate that I ever did that.

I like Liyoness's answer- she must have good reason to feel that way and if it were me I would worry why my child was always getting hurt- maybe a visit to the dr. to see if something is medically affecting her? My SIL was like this and dropped, yes dropped both of her girls as infants several times. All were accidents but accidents are preventable. Long story and way more to it but 2 years later the kids were removed from her and now are living with my parents.

My mom thinks my daughter isn't safe with me. Just because she is forever bumping her head into things and fell out of a chair a couple times............. If I was your mom, the next time I was at your house I'd hide a Nanny Cam. Because it sounds to me like your mom is right. You don't protect her enough. Do you even pay attention to her? She is probably threatening CPS to get you to step up your game and take better care of your daughter. And if they come when she has those bruises from supposedly falling and bumping her head, you may get hit with abuse and neglect charges.
