Saturday when I was dropping off my SS to his mom she shared with me how she has court for child abuse and neglect. What brought this up is I guess my 6 yr old SS set a bathroom trash can on fire Friday morning. I guess all they did was put him in a corner and then made him clean it up. This is his 3rd time doing it. I told them that's when I would spank him (spanking is last resort to me plus I don't have the heart to spank them hard so i think it's not effective for me at least). That's when she said she wasn't allowed to spank because CPS is watching her every move.
Now back to my question. We were unaware of this and his father was never contacted that she was under investigation for child abuse. Since he's son is in her home, shouldn't he have been contacted?
Anything we should do? Like contact CPS and ask why? I want to figure out when her court date is and show up and see if we can get custody of my SS. We already know he's neglected but we live in mother's state meaning the mother ALWAYS gets custody no matter what. We've already looked into it. Laws are trying to change giving fathers equal rights.
Oh my SS set the trash on fire at 8am with a lighter while all the adults were still sleeping.
