  • Yes I would. I have had to call CPS on a relative. Now I am raising her kids.

  • if you feel the kids are in danger or being neglected or abused then yes call they will go and check it out make sure the kids are safe they will take it from there. I dont know what your friends side is but if you already talked to her and she ignored you then protect the kids first and worry about the friendship later.

  • Well, if you truly feel that she is neglecting and abusing them, then yes. Like I said in the other post, its easy to lay out our story so that everyone agrees with us, but your friend might have a different version. Not to say that there are excuses for what shes done, but it could be she just needs help.

  • If a child is in danger, how can you not call?

  • Yes, I would call CPS. Protecting children is more important than protecting a friendship. Apparently, you've tried to help her out and she won't take the help you're offering. CPS will make her take their help.
