I've read that CPS workers will send a child back to a parent that purposely physically abused them such as burning them with hot water or beating them so bad they ended up in the hospital. Is that true? Do they really do that? Have you heard of a time when someone did that? Did the children go back because the allegations were not substantiated or did the social worker think the parent deserved another chance.Answer Question

It is certainly true that there are horror stories connected to foster care and the children being sent back to unsafe environments but in my experience the workers were always genuinely doing what they thought was best at the time. Laws have changed also. They can't allow foster children to stay in foster care indefinitely which gives caseworkers the right to seek TPR if there has been no change in the safety of the children's original home in a certain amount of time.
