I have recently been dealing with some stuff on the topic as well seen alot of things regarding CPS lately. It got me wondering what do you ladies think? When it involves the protection of children How far is to far? Is there a to far? When should they butt out and when should they step in? Under what circumstances should they be able to remove children from homes? Is there a point where some times being to strict or to cautious could be counter productive? I mean thinking about it logically there are a number of stories where they make mistakes remove kids for no good reason. Could this be more detrimental? What of the strife caused to the family or the hardship on the children. Should there be a set mandate for when it is acceptable or not to break up a family? and What if there is a mistake made what if a family is disrupted and later found the concerns were not warranted? Should there be punishments for the workers involved or compensation for the families it harm? When does parenting cease to be individualized and when is it controlled or should be controlled by the government? If you are unjustly accused should you fight or roll with it? What do you think and what would you do if it was you?Answer Question

CPS workers are mandated to follows the laws our elected officials make. Those laws include a long list of administrative rules that details the policies and procedures that workers are required to abide by. It might seem like there is a lot of wiggle room to decide whether or not they should investigate and how they might proceed but there really isn't.
I think we've got a mediocre (at best) system trying to deal with and extremely complicated problem. All in all, i think CPS helps more children than they hurt but I'm not really sure thats good enough for me.
