so our nextdoor neighbors little boy who plays with my kids (mind u he is 10) was outside kicking a soccer ball around with his 6 or 7 yr old sister on the sidewalk- at around 10:30pm and he has school tomorrow (he told me so when i asked him) and I didn't see any adult out there with them! and to make it worse i am pretty sure its the same woman who left her newborn in a stroller out on the sidewalk with a little 4 or 5 yr old boy yesterday for long enough for me to come out of my house (with my 4 boys) and get in my car and pull of to go shopping ( which i did very slowly to see just how long it took for her to come out, which was too long for my comfort) dont u know it takes less than 5 minutes for your child to be snatched? and not to mention i don't live in the best of areas- if this mess keeps up im sorry but dyfs will be called!
am i wrong?

You are probably just being too nosey and over reacting. But if it makes you feel superior, then go ahead and call CPS tonight!!

Since when do you have to be perfect to be concerned? I am not sure WHEN this mentality formed. It's really kinda sad. I understand not wanting to talk to the parent. Exactly HOW do you broach THAT subject without someone jumping down your throat! And with all the crazies out there....without worrying about retaliation. I used to work in a daycare and we had to take classes because it was licensed. One of them was given by DHR and the woman made a point. She said, we dont want your kids. We dont want to come and snatch your babies away. The FIRST thing they will do is just take a look around. If they arent neglected or in danger they are fine. If they ARE then you may have REALLY helped some kids. They ALSO dont just get thrown into the system. They TRY and place them with family first......IF there is even a NEED! Think about this......how will you feel if something bad happens if you dont :( Good luck!
