Today my son was left by his father at his dad's apt with no phone. After several phone calls, his dad finally answers to let me know he was at his apt alone. I called and them do a welfare check on my son. . . he was there. He opened the door and the policeman lectured him about opening the door and left. Left him there and went to his dad's work and lectured him and told him to go home immediately. I was at work and called the PD to let them know that I was gonna stop by to get a copy of the report and even tho I did get the report....First I was asked report for what and then was told there was no report and then I was threatened for DCS to be called on both us and investigated. I told him that would be fine He said he called DCS and they told him that there is no specific age that it was based on maturity. How mature can a 10yr old be? The sheriff's dept says 13 is the legal age.Answer Question
that wouldn't count as child neglect?!?

He just moved into apt. 3 weeks ago. Not in a very good neighborhood at all. If he were running to the store I wouldn't be upset. But we're talking all day. And he didn't go ck on him at lunch...he sent a friend to drop him lunch off. At his previous residence he was allowed to roam as he wished. We have been to the emergency room x2 to get stitches where he had gone to a creek and the first time he went to a store and told the owner what happened and she took him to his father who didn't call me til after the fact. I have appt with a lawyer next wednesday. I'm fed up and it's no mistake on the father's part. It's stupidity on his father's part. If he were as interested in his child as he is his self there wouldn't be any issues.
