  • IDK is the kid in danger, drugs abuse, etc. you would need to give some more information before I could make up my mind, last I knew having a dirty baby wasn't grounds to call.

  • Is the child neglected, abused, in any kind of danger? Is the house dirty or messy, there is a difference?

  • no mom or dad dose drugs. having a dirty house not messy .poop in floor from dog mold in fridge.just dirty. iam a person who keeps my house spotless and I know she dosn't have to have spotless just keep it picked up. and keep the baby clean. I have her most of the time which I love having her with me. I dont want to have to call cps. I think being a good parent is part of keeping things picked. there is just the 3 of them and she dosnt work. my son is not use to living in filth.

  • my son is not use to living in filth.

    I'm confused. Are you worried about someone else's kid in a home that's dirty, or are you leaving your son with someone whose house is dirty? If it's the second one, why call CPS? Why not just take your kid somewhere else? If it's the first one, it really depends on whether the kid is in danger or being neglected or at serious risk of getting sick or something from the house.

  • Can your son help her to clean or can you offer some help? Maybe she is overwhelmed.

  • I would be concerned about dog feces on the floor and mold in the fridge.

  • What does your son have to do with this situation? It is your call on this issue. Call CPS if you want.
