What is the dumbest thing you have had children services called on you for?

Someone once called children services on me saying I locked my son in a closet...its funny cuz I tell him that or tell him I will or tell him we don't feed kids on wednesdays or whatever day it happens to be. He knows I am joking but aparently someone thought I was serious. I laughed so hard.

  • WOW! That's funny. I can't wait for my son to start Kindergarten. We always tell him if he is bad, he'll have to go see his gramma. He doesn't like her. He was talking to her on the phone yesterday and she asked him "When are you gonna come see gramma again?" He says to her "My dad and mommy say when I am bad I will have to come see you". I was like "oh god...please let her have misunderstood him." since she doesn't really listen very well anyway. LMAO!

  • worriedmommy- we've had are tiff before but this is coming from a fresh start. I don't think it's funny to joke around about locking your child in a closet to anyone or your child. Locking your children in a closet is a form of abuse and many people do it. I don't think joking around about abusing your child is funny and neither is laughing because someone called CPS on you. None of it is a laughing matter.

  • My ex mother in law called on me this week. We have a puppy and I told my son to get in the house so the puppy could beat him up (joking) and she got all mad at me. The next day the dog warden and children services at my house. Aparently I told my pitbulls (I have boxers) to attack my son....duh....she is always trying to cause problems

  • I think the best way to deal with shitty situations is to laugh it off....its better than getting all depressed...my son knows that I am joking and that is all that matters to me. He is healthy and happy and we always joke around

  • When my first son was about 6 months old, he was the chunkiest baby in the world. He had rolls on his rolls. Someone called and said that he was "neglected" and "was never fed". I know who it was that called it in...we were in the middle of a court case against my dad for raping me as a child...I met with the Detective that was working on my case and he helped get us cleared. It was a bunch of BS.

  • We've never had them called. But the one time we came close we were lucky enough that the teacher knew us and called us in to talk. The kids play room was in the basement at the time. We had the dogs kennel down there too. The dog was never locked in it, she just liked to lay in her bed while the kids played. But my darling pre schooler told her teacher we lock her in the kennel when she's bad. The kennel was moved to the shed that day and taken apart! I love my little story telling nutball.
