  • I would call them bc the kids are the ones that need to be taking care of.

    And yes they do care it might take some time to get them there but they will get there. CALL!

  • CPS will come. They will charge the mom with endangerement and possibly toss the mom and her new guy into jail. But it'll be quick. They won't pull the kids right away, but they may switch up visitation and require mom to report in.
    The bottom line is YES, they will come and YES they will do something about it.

  • hun the way i put it if you know of ANY child in danager you should at least try to call cps. If they dont do anything the first time they will the second or third. NEVER give up on a child you feel is in danager

  • CPS will have to investigate, but if they don't find any proof to these claims, it is going to end up looking worse for you than for them, like you are harrassing them by filing false claims. I would make sure that I could back up what I was alleging before callling CPS.
